Integrating Internal Displacement in Peace Processes and Agreements

Th is guide provides mediators and their teams with practical guidance on integrating the human rights and interests of internally displaced persons (IDPs) into peace processes and peace agreements. Achieving such integration will not only safeguard the rights and interests of IDPs as
stakeholders in a peace process but also assist mediators in fulfilling their core mission of helping the parties to the conflict reach a negotiated and sustainable settlement. By engaging IDPs in the peace process and integrating their interests in any agreed-upon settlement, mediators can
create broader “buy in” and ownership of the process. By addressing durable solutions to internal displacement—i.e., return, local integration,
or settlement in another part of the country—mediators can enhance the prospects of securing a viable agreement, sustaining its implementation,
and building peace.
