United Nations Document related to Housing and Land Rights in India
Date: 16 December, 2019
This compilation prepared by HLRN presents recommendations, communications, and references to India—related to housing and land rights—in documents and reports of United Nations human rights mechanisms, including treaty bodies, Special Procedures, and the Human Rights Council’s Universal Periodic Review.
Through this publication, HLRN aims to draw the attention of state and non-state actors to India’s international legal and moral commitments. We hope that this publication will help spread awareness on the significant work of the United Nations on housing and land rights issues in India, and urge the Government of India to take immediate action to implement the recommendations made by various mechanisms; provide restoration and restitution of human rights; and, abide by its international reporting requirements.
