Guide to International Human Rights Mechanisms for Internally Displaced Persons and their Advocates

The Guide offers a basic course to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and their advocates in international human rights law and mechanisms. It sets forth the rights that IDPs enjoy, advises how IDPs and their advocates can use international and regional mechanisms, and identifies the mechanisms best suited to address the different kinds of human rights violations in all phases of displacement. The Guide - a must read for IDPs and their advocates - is designed as an encyclopedia of human rights mechanisms for IDPs, formatted to direct the reader to the information and the mechanisms most relevant to his or her particular situation at any given time.
