goes against the above-mentioned provisions in order to subjugate the people of Nagorno
Karabakh to a rule not of the latter’s choice, it still attempts to claim some rights over the

reaching a lasting solution for the Nagorno Karabakh conflict based on the full respect and
exercise of the Nagorno Karabakh people’s right to self-determination.

informally registered land (with the kelurahan) has significant symbolic and material
consequences. As previously mentioned, kampong lands are virtually all unregistered, while
those of the formal sector – exclusive neighbourhoods of developers’ built housing – make
up the bulk of the registered residential parcels.62

REPORT OF THE SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR ON THE HUMAN RIGHTS OF INTERNALLY DISPLACED PERSONS ON HIS MISSION TO GEORGIA : NOTE / BY THE SECRETARIAT
While durable solutions for internally displaced persons should continue to be
approached from a humanitarian and development perspective, the continuing absence of a
political solution to the unresolved conflict remains a major obstacle to achieving durable
solutions for internally displaced persons from Abkhazia, Georgia, and from the Tskhinvali
region/South Ossetia, Georgia. (...) Considering overall needs
and the fact that every registered internally displaced person is entitled by law to a durable
housing solution, such solutions remain limited, despite the efforts of the authorities, and
the Government struggles to find sufficient funds in the State budget for this purpose.
21. (...) During the
Special Rapporteur’s meetings with internally displaced persons, many mentioned that their
only source of income was the allowance for internally displaced persons they received
from the Government.
