For more than sixty years, the blue helmets of the United Nations peacekeeping missions have come to symbolize both the promise and the fragility of the UN. Though beset with unresolved conflicts, underfunded, and invariably burdened with sentiments of over-expectation, UN peace operations have made a difference with their ‘peacebuilding’ initiatives. While peacebuilding has been extensively analysed and critiqued, the UN’s role in addressing and ameliorating housing, land, and property rights challenges has not. This volume seeks to fill the void by examining the UN’s experience grappling with the immense and inevitable housing, land, and property rights crises that emerge in all countries during and after conflict. Through analysis of UN peace missions in Burundi, Cambodia, Iraq, Kosovo, Rwanda, Sudan and elsewhere, this volume provides a unique array of perspectives on what the UN has done right, what it has done wrong, and what it should do in the future.

  • First book to address housing, land and property rights issues
  • Discusses direct links between peace and housing/living conditions in which people live in countries emerging from war
  • Shows immense similarities between various countries with respect to housing, land, and property consequences
