Center on Housing Rights & Evictions (COHRE) [access]
- As noted in this TerraNullius blog post, the COHRE web site disappeared in April 2012, but now has been re-instated online, presumably as an archive.  Some COHRE documents are also available via the resource library of the Global Initiative for Economic, Social & Cultural Rights.

Displacement Research & Action Network (MIT) [access]
- "[A] global network on displacement and land rights that brings together activists, academics and policy makers to build new theory and evidence of the increase and intensity of mass internal displacement around the world due to development, conflict or climate disaster."
