Chapter Summary

In 1997, in an article on monitoring the rights of the internally displaced included in the 2001 edition on monitoring mechanisms, the author explained the drafting history and the rationale of the Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement (the Guiding Principles), which had just been issued. The Guiding Principles provide clarity to governments, non-governmental organisations and the internally displaced themselves. The Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) carries out training activities to enhance the capacity of local actors to respond to the needs of internally displaced people, and has developed a set of training materials, in particular on the use of the Guiding Principles. In addition to the human rights mechanisms dedicated to internal displacement described, other UN departments and agencies have become increasingly involved in operations that aim to provide the internally displaced with protection, that is monitor their rights, directly or indirectly.

Keywords: Guiding Principles; internally displaced persons; non-governmental organisations; UN human rights mechanisms
