Chapter Summary

A critical review of classic doctrine concerning the regimes of protection of the human person reveals that it used to endorse a rather compartmentalized out- look, distinguishing the International Law of Human Rights, International Refugee Law and International Humanitarian Law, due in great part to an exagerated emphasis in the distinct historical origins of the three regimes of protection. The basic principle of non-discrimination occupies a central position in the aforementioned Guiding Principles of 1998, which cares to list the same rights, of internally displaced persons, which other persons in their country enjoy. The relevance and prevalence of the basic principles are clearly illustrated, e.g., by the universal recognition of the principle of non-refoulement. The practice of the international supervisory organs of human rights is particularly illustrative, in reinforcing the prohibition of devolution.
