The displacement of people within their own countries owing to war or natural disasters is a matter of growing concern worldwide. This concern is amply justified: time and again, internally displaced people (IDPs) suffer extreme hardship that jeopardizes their very survival. A host of dangers threaten internally displaced people whether during their flight, while they are displaced, or even upon their return home or resettlement elsewhere.

This brochure explores the issue and details how the ICRC's works to protect and assist IDPs.
