Secure Access to Housing

Government of Armenia

Secure Access to Housing


It effectively seeks to implement adequate housing as a basic human right (article 11 of the ICESCR) as a cross-cutting imperative for durable solutions and long-term development outcomes. The goal is to guarantee the above mentioned right of the indigenous population of Nagomo-Karabakh, who were subjected to ethnic cleansing and become refugees.

Women, children, persons with disabilities, older persons and other vulnerable groups have been disproportionately affected by the policy of ethnic cleansing and are in need of protection and shelter. In this regard the Government of Armenia will undertake the following measures:

  • Recognition of legal status and rights of Nagorno Karabakh refugees according to the 1951 Refugee Convention.

  • Carry out activities to obtain the necessary financial, material and other resources to create appropriate conditions for providing affordable housing to refugees from Nagorno-Karabakh with the support of donor countries and other development actors by way of resource mobilization.

  • Strengthen national capacity for individual registration and documentation.
