Shining a light on internal displacement. A vision for the future

The Report of the United Nations Secretary-General’s High-Level Panel on Internal Displacement firstly describes the dynamics of the current global crisis of internal displacement and argues for the need to go beyond addressing it as a humanitarian crisis. Secondly, the paper puts forward the need to strengthen prevention by addressing roots causes and improving protection and assistance.

The report underscores the importance of building upon the work done by EGRISS to develop capacity for states and ensure coordination between local, national, and international partners.
