The Movement Policy on Internal Displacement proposes 10 principles for addressing forced displacement. The policy guidelines refer to the importance of national law and international human rights, while emphasizing that IHL is the strongest international legal framework applicable in times of armed conflict, both for preventing displacement and for meeting the most pressing assistance and protection needs of the civilian population, including IDPs.
