Life Can Change: Securing Housing, Land and Property Rights for Displaced Women

In many places affected by conflict and crisis, displaced women continue to live in extreme vulnerability. They often suffer unbelievable human rights abuses and remain marginalised, unable to make decisions about their lives and their communities. This is especially the case with respect to the realisation of their housing, land and property (HLP) rights.

Norwegian Refugee Council’s (NRC) staff witness first-hand how conflict is most acutely felt by women and exacerbated by discrimination. Through our legal assistance operations we have witnessed the magnitude of the difficulties confronting displaced women seeking to access justice in order to claim their housing, land and property.
