Forced migration review: Twenty years of the Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement

Source(s):  Oxford University
Refugee Studies Centre (RSC)

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, including discussions on disaster-induced and climate change related displacement. Authors acknowledge the applications and successes of the Guiding Principles while reflecting on their limitations, the challenges to their implementation, their relevance to contemporary incidences and different drivers of internal displacement, future challenges that might have to be faced, and the potential application of new understandings and new approaches.
