Centre on Housing Rights and Evictions (COHRE)

The Centre on Housing Rights and Evictions (COHRE) is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit human rights organisation established in 1994 in the Netherlands and now based in Geneva, Switzerland. We are one of the principal agencies focusing on the human right to housing and on forced evictions at the international level. We work closely with an extensive network of partner organisations and community activists around the world, without whose involvement and support COHRE’s work would not be possible.

COHRE works at all levels - from grassroots assistance to communities fighting forced eviction or slum conditions, to standard-setting at international institutions such as the United Nations - to resist and prevent forced evictions, strengthen the protection and promotion of housing rights and increase awareness of these fundamental rights as key components of international human rights law.
