Returns of Internally Displaced Persons during Armed Conflict

Dr. David James Cantor

Solutions to the epidemic of forced internal displacement are frequently premised on the return of internally displaced persons (IDPs). Indeed, as a characteristic need of IDPs, such returns benefit from a special protection framework developed by IDP protection instruments such as the Guiding Principles. This book answers long-standing calls for research by presenting a detailed study of the return of conflict-afffected IDPs under international law.
