Nicaragua: Housing Rights in Historical Complexities and Current Challenges: Joint Mission Report

The Centre on Housing Rights and Evictions (COHRE), in partnership with the Wisconsin Coordinating Council on Nicaragua (WCCN) and the Nicaraguan Human Rights Center (CENIDH), undertook an extensive fact-finding mission to Nicaragua in late September and early October 2002. This joint report is one result of that fact finding mission and addresses the stark contrast which is evident in the current housing rights situation in Nicaragua. Housing conditions for the poorer segments of the population are appalling, but there are real opportunities for intervention and improvement.
