Through this Online Course participants will explore key aspects of the protection of IDPs, while analysing internal displacement from different angles and perspectives. Starting from the international norms underpinning the protection of IDPs, including the Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement and the Kampala Convention, the workshop examines the causes and consequences of internal displacement, its current global trends, and the protection risks faced by individuals throughout the displacement cycle. The Online Course also analyses cross-cutting issues, such as housing, land and property, data collection, and the international community coordination mechanisms established together with State’s authorities and civil society representatives to respond to IDP situations. The workshop ultimately addresses the search and implementation of durable and sustainable solutions for IDPs in line with the work of the United Nations Secretary-General’s High-Level Panel on Internal Displacement on the subject and the Action Agenda on Internal Displacement. The course is organized with the support of the office of the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Internally Displaced persons.
