Three years after the devastating earthquake in Haiti, tens of thousands of people are still living in insecure and inadequate shelters. This 50-page report shows how Haiti’s post-quake reconstruction is failing to protect and fulfil the right to adequate housing. Amnesty International has documented a pattern of forced evictions of internally displaced families. This has involved the mass removals without notice. Forced evictions violate the rights of internally displaced people at all stages: threats prior to the eviction, violence during the eviction, and homelessness following the eviction.
