Addressing Internal Displacement in Peace Processes, Peace Agreements and Peace-Building

Resolving internal displacement – and preventing future displacement - is inextricably linked with achieving lasting peace. On one hand, unresolved problems of displacement may cause instability and thus threaten peace processes as well as peace-building efforts. On the other hand durable solutions, particularly return, cannot be achieved for internally displaced persons as long as there is a lack of security; property is not restored; and conditions for sustainable solutions – including reconciliation between local communities and returnees, post-conflict reconstruction and the re-establishment of the rule of law and a legitimate government – are not in place.
