9780521858755: Housing and Property Restitution Rights of Refugees and Displaced Persons: Laws, Cases, and Materials

The legal recognition of the housing, land, and property rights of refugees and displaced persons has expanded steadily in recent years as the realization has grown that securing these rights will be beneficial to long-term peace, stability, economic vitality, and justice. This volume contains more than 240 of the laws, cases, and materials that have been adopted during the past century, which accord those unjustly and arbitrarily displaced from their homes and lands with rights: not simply to return to their countries or places of origin, but to return to the original home, land, or property from which they were initially forced to flee. The breadth of the restitution standards found within this volume, combined with selected examples of case law and other materials, are a clear indication that a right to housing, land, and property restitution for refugees and displaced persons has emerged within the global legal domain.

Book Description:

Throughout history, ordinary people have been forced to flee their homes due to war, state-driven violence, human rights violations such as forced eviction, and natural and manmade disasters. For most of recorded history, those displaced never returned to their original homes and were forced to start new lives elsewhere.

The past sixty years have been witness to a major historical shift whereby those who were forced to flee their homes against their will have been increasingly entitled -- by right -- to return to and repossess their homes, lands, and properties. This has become known as the process of housing, land, and property restitution.

This book contains 240 laws and other regulations recognizing these rights at the international, regional, and national levels.
