Housing, land and Property in Conflict and Displacement Settings
description
Housing and land are the main things that displaced persons lose when they are forced to leave their places of origin. Once peace and security has been restored in the country, IDPs often find it difficult to reclaim their homes and lands that have been either destroyed or occupied by others. This is a common feature in almost all post-conflict situations. And it is a major obstacle to the establishment of other durable solutions. The tensions in property disputes pose a serious threat to post-conflict stabilisation. This article discusses the importance of issues relating to housing, land and property throughout the displacement cycle. Violations of the rights to housing, land and property are at the same time, both cause and consequence of displacement. The 1055 of shelter and soil brings new vulnerabilities for displaced populations that may jeopardize their health and physical safety and Iimit their opportunities to earn a living. The restitution of housing and property is also a key element to achieving durable solutions. The existence of effective mechanisms for conflict resolution plays an important role in consolidating peace. This paper will examine specific challenges to address land disputes in the context of informal occupation of land and will provide an overview of how humanitarian actors address this issue.

Una vez recuperada la paz y asentada la seguridad en el país las PDI, a menudo, tienen dificultades para recuperar sus viviendas y tierras que o bien han sido destruidas o bien ocupadas por otras personas. Tal situación constituye una característica común a casi todos los contextos post-conflicto. Y constituye un obstáculo importante para la instauración de otras soluciones duraderas. Las tensiones surgidas en disputas sobre propiedad suponen una amenaza seria para la estabilización post-conflicto. Este artículo aborda la importancia de las cuestiones relativas a la vivienda, el suelo y la propiedad a lo largo del ciclo de desplazamiento. Las violaciones de los derechos a la vivienda, el suelo y la propiedad son, al mismo tiempo, causa y consecuencia del desplazamiento. La pérdida de cobijo y de suelo acarrea nuevas vulnerabilidades para las poblaciones desplazadas, puede poner en riesgo su seguridad sanitaria y física y limitar sus oportunidades para ganarse la vida. La restitución de la vivienda y las propiedades también es un elemento fundamental para lograr soluciones duraderas. La existencia de mecanismos eficaces para la resolución de conflictos juega un papel relevante en la consolidación de la paz. La presentación analizará retos específicos para abordar disputas sobre suelo en un contexto de ocupación informal de suelo y ofrecerá una perspectiva general del modo en que los agentes humanitarios abordan dicha cuestión.Universidad de Deusto = Deustuko Unibertsitatea: Instituto de Derechos Humanos Pedro Arrupe2011text (article)application/pdfhttps://dialnet.unirioja.es/servlet/oaiart?codigo=3850360(Revista) ISSN 1885-298XAnuario de acción humanitaria y derechos humanos = Yearbook of humanitarian action and human rights, ISSN 1885-298X, Nº. 9, 2011, pags. 29-40engLICENCIA DE USO: Los documentos a texto completo incluidos en Dialnet son de acceso libre y propiedad de sus autores y/o editores.
