|Title:||Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement|
|Description:||The Guiding Principles "identify rights and guarantees relevant to the protection of persons from forced displacement and to their protection and assistance during displacement as well as during return or resettlement and reintegration." (Intro., sec. 1.)
The Principles are available online in several languages in PDF format.
In 2000, ASIL and the Brookings Institution published Annotations to the Guiding Principles by Walter Kälin in Stud. in Transnat'l Legal Pol'y, no. 32, available online in PDF. Two OCHA volumes relating to the Guiding Principles are the Manual on Field Practice in Internal Displacement (large PDF file) and the Handbook for Applying the Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement (large PDF file), prepared by the Brookings-Bern Project on Internal Displacment. Further information and documentation pertaining to internally displaced persons may be found at ReliefWeb.
