Geneva Call,IDMC, Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre
This report is a summary of the proceeding of the expert conference held in Geneva by Geneva Call and the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) of the Norwegian Refugee Council on 23 and 24 March 2011, on the theme “Armed non-State Actors and the Protection of Internally Displaced People”. The conference explored different aspects of the complex interface between armed non-State Actors (ANSAs) and the protection of internally displaced people (IDPs). It was a unique opportunity for current and former ANSAs and members of civil society from areas undergoing internal displacement to express their views and perspectives, as well as a forum for representatives from humanitarian organisations and academics to share their experience and knowledge, and to present the findings of their academic and field research.
