Forced Migration Review: Twenty Years of the Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement
Forced Migration Review Issue 59, October 2018: Twenty Years of the Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement
In the 20 years since they were launched, the Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement have been of assistance to many States responding to internal displacement, and have been incorporated into many national and regional policies and laws. However, the scale of internal displacement today remains vast, and the impact on those who are displaced is immense. This issue includes 19 articles on the main feature theme of Twenty Years of the Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement.
See contribution from Jessie Connell and Sabira Coelho (IOM) on Planned relocation in Asia and the Pacific:
Promising policy developments are underway in Asia and the Pacific to address climate and disaster-related displacement, yet the deeper governance structures required to embed protection are not yet in place, especially for planned relocation. There needs to be greater emphasis on assisting governments to set up inter-ministerial structures equipped to deal with the complex cross-cutting issues that planned relocation involves.
