Forced eviction

Indicate if the situation is one involving forced eviction, resulting in the violation of housing and/or land rights.
Note:  violations may occur in combinations.  For example, an eviction may be simultaneously a demolition and a dispossession, or any of these could arise from the privatization of a public good or service.

The database will understand that the numbers  you enter express the combined totals from all the violations in this case, unless you specify which data relate exclusively to a specific type of violation.

§         Costs

Record your costs and losses resulting from the eviction (e.g., transport, alternate housing, personal possessions, health and injury-related costs). Land and Housing damages and losses are recorded below.
