Wikileaks, Housing Rights and Afghanistan: Documenting Gross Housing and Land Rights Violations as War Crimes

Housing and Land Rights Network (HLRN) issued a special report on “Wikileaks, Housing Rights and Afghanistan: Documenting Gross Housing and Land Rights Violations as War Crimes”.

This special report reviews various sources documenting violations of housing and land rights, including gross violations and grave breaches that amount to war crimes and/or crimes against humanity. It provides illustrative examples from monitors on the ground, investigative journalism and the raw material that has emerged from Wikileaks` 2009 release of the "Afghan War Diary" documents. The paper provides a framework and typology for addressing such violations in the context of conflict, occupation and war, including by prosecuting the responsible parties and providing reparations for their victims.
