In 1997, the Comprehensive Human Rights Guidelines on Development-Based Displacement were adopted by participants in the Expert Seminar on the Practice of Forced Evictions, held in Geneva from 11 to 13 June (UN doc. E/CN.4/ Sub.2/1997/7, 2 July 1997). These guidelines include obligations on states to secure by all appropriate means, including the provision of security of tenure, the maximum degree of effective protection against forced evictions; to prevent homelessness; and to explore all possible alternatives to forced evictions.
