Public and Political participation of Internally Displaced Persons

Around the world today, some 40 million people are internally displaced by conflict and violence. Countless more are displaced by disasters. They, unlike refugees, remain within their own countries. Providing protection and assistance to these internally displaced persons (IDPs) is first and
foremost the responsibility of their own governments. Because internally displaced are most often citizens of the country in which they are uprooted, they are entitled to the same set of rights as other non-displaced nationals, and for all citizens this includes the right to participation in public and political life.
