Special Workshop: ‘Revitalising the IDP Field’
20 Years of the UN Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement
Refugee Law Initiative, University of London
20 July 2018
Join us for a dedicated one-day workshop to celebrate 20 years of the UN Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement on Friday 20 July 2018 at the Senate House, University of London.
The 20th anniversary of the adoption in 1998 of the UN Guiding Principles offers a unique opportunity to reflect not only on their influence on internal displacement globally but also on the global state of research and practice on internally displaced persons (IDPs).
This special IDP Workshop provides a forum for researchers, practitioners, policy-makers and students to come together to present, debate and reflect on this field and its future. It offers the chance to begin developing new research and policy agendas and collaborations.
Please note that the Refugee Law Initiative (RLI) 3rd Annual Conference will take place over the preceding two days (Weds 18 July – Thurs 19 July). IDP Workshop participants are welcome to participate in the RLI Annual Conference but must register separately for it.
