Rule-of-law tools for post-conflict states by United Nations ( )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In response to the myriad violations and abuses of fundamental rights that take place particularly during conflicts and under authoritarian regimes, a variety of measures have been developed. This publication has reviewed some of the relevant international law instruments on reparations, and has raised some of the most difficult challenges that reparations programs have faced in different parts off the world. It is a practical tool to provide guidance on implementing reparations initiatives and focuses on how to establish (outof-court) fair and effective reparations programs in close association with other justice initiatives and with the participation of various stakeholders to help redress cases of gross and serious violations of human rights in the wake of conflict or authoritarian rule.--Publisher's description

Indigenous peoples' right to adequate housing : a global overview ( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the course of the International Decade of the World's Indigenous People (1995-2004), the international community has taken important steps towards addressing the disadvantage of indigenous peoples and contributing to improvements in their living conditions. The General Assembly in proclaiming the Decade called for international cooperation to develop solutions to problems faced by indigenous peoples and adopted the slogan "indigenous people--partnership in action". The present collaboration between UNHABITAT and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) is a part of the growing effort of the United Nations system to work together to incorporate indigenous rights and interests into their programmes. The right to adequate housing has been recognized in article 11 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and in other international instruments. Having a secure place to live, is one of the fundamental elements for human dignity, physical and mental health and overall quality of life, which enables one's development. Against this backdrop, in 2002, the Commission on Human Rights appointed an independent Special Rapporteur on adequate housing, whose mandate is to focus on the realization of adequate housing as a component of the right to an adequate standard of living, worldwide. To support the efforts by governments, the civil society and the national human rights institutions towards the full and progressive realization of the right to adequate housing, UN-HABITAT and OHCHR established the United Nations Housing Rights Programme (UNHRP) in 2002, under which the present research project has been realized. As part of the efforts to promote the full and progressive realization of the right to adequate housing globally, the particular concerns of indigenous peoples--their generally poor housing situation, their vulnerability as groups affected by displacement, the insecurity of tenure they often have over their traditional homelands, and the culturally inappropriate housing alternatives offered by the authorities--have emerged repeatedly as important issues. Indigenous peoples themselves have called upon the United Nations to recognize and respect their rights to lands and resources, a right that would assure them the basis for adequate and appropriate housing and living conditions. The present report "Indigenous peoples' right to adequate housing--A global overview", is a preliminary effort to identify whether, and to what extent, indigenous peoples enjoy the right to adequate housing in different regions of the world and identify strategies that might assist in the realization of this right. The report includes seven case studies on the status of housing for indigenous peoples--in practice and in law--and includes information about policies and programmes aimed at addressing their needs and disadvantage. The preliminary findings and recommendations of this report were presented to the 3rd session of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues and were greatly appreciated by the members and participants of the Forum. This report constitutes a preliminary but important first step toward understanding the relationship between all economic, social and cultural rights and the progressive realization of the right to adequate housing of indigenous peoples, and to improving their living conditions worldwide. The report calls for further attention to be given to this critical human rights concern and above all, it calls for renewed commitment from the international community to improve the living conditions of the world's indigenous peoples.--Preface
