Movement policy on internal displacement

Article 30 November 2009

The Movement has long been active in addressing the needs of individuals and communities affected by internal displacement. The Movement Policy on Internal Displacement, adopted by the Council of Delegates in November 2009, reaffirmed the Movement's engagement with this issue and its work to help internally displaced people and host communities. It also recognized the value of a coordinated response by the whole Movement. In line with this policy, whenever possible, the ICRC prioritizes partnerships with National Societies in designing and implementing activities for internally displaced and host communities worldwide.
