New report by Amnesty International on forced evictions in Haiti's displacement camps

'Nowhere to go': Forced evictions in Haiti's displacement camps

By Amesty International, 50 pages, published on April 23, 2013

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.
