Tens of millions of displaced people are currently unable to return to their original homes. Forced to flee their homes by a variety of circumstances beyond their control -- ranging from armed conflict and severe human rights abuses to environmental crises and natural disasters -- the overwhelming majority of the world's displaced people would happily return to their original homes if given the chance to do so. Displacement Solutions believes that addressing housing, land and property (HLP) restitution rights is one of the keys to solving displacement, and that even the most intractable situations of long-term displacement can be resolved in a just and sustainable manner. With innovative, rights-based analysis and remedial measures, displaced persons everywhere can be practically assisted to return and reclaim their homes, receive adequate compensation or be resettled in ways fully consistent with their human rights.
