New Materials on Security of Tenure in Several Languages – Newsletter # 46


After two years of work, we concluded the Security of
Tenure Project with the publication of the “Guiding Principles on Security of
Tenure for the Urban Poor” , as a leaflet and as a guide.

The leaflet presents the guiding principles on security of
tenure included in the thematic report presented in March to the UN Human
Rights Council. It is available on our website in five languages – Portuguese,
English, Spanish, French, and Arabic. Click here to read it.

The guide contains the full thematic report as well as the
resolution adopted by the Human Rights Council, which addresses a number of
issues related to security of tenure and includes references to the
rapporteur’s guiding principles on the theme. This material is also available
in our website, in English and Spanish. Click here to read it.
