Canada's Centre for International Governance Innovation releases report on governance gaps and internally displaced persons
As part of the World Refugee Council Research Paper Series, Canada's Centre for International Government Innovation has released a report entitled 'Innovative Global Governance for Internally Displaced Persons'. Using the United Nation's 1998 'Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement' as reference, the paper address governance gaps and challenges in response to internal displacement, as well as promising new approaches to making responses more reliable and effective.
The number of internally displaced persons around the world is at a record high and the set of norms, institutions and processes necessary to address internal displacement is weak. The World Refugee Council has commissioned research papers and policy documents from world-renowned experts to help inform the work of the Council.
