Description - Internal Displacement by Thomas G. Weiss

This new volume traces the normative, legal, institutional, and political responses to the challenges of assisting and protecting internally displaced persons (IDPs). The crisis of IDPs was first confronted in the 1980s, and the problems of those suffering from this type of forced migration has grown continually since then. Drawing on official and confidential documents as well as interviews with leading personalities, Internal Displacement provides an unparalleled analysis of this important issue and includes: * an exploration of the phenomenon of internal displacement and of policy research about it * a review of efforts to increase awareness about the plight of IDPs and the development of a legal framework to protect them * a 'behind-the-scenes' look at the creation and evolution of the mandate of the Representative of the Secretary-General on IDPs * a variety of case studies illustrating the difficulties in overcoming the operational shortcomings within the UN system * a foreword by former UN high commissioner for refugees, Sadako Ogata. Internal Displacement will appeal to students and scholars with interests in war and peace, forced migration, human rights and global governance.
