South Asians for Human Rights

Promoting Democracy, Upholding Human Rights

The Indian consultation was held on 17th July and drew participants from civil society, including lawyers, journalists, academics, and other human rights activists. Discussions centred around the Deng Principles, as well as the particular plight of development and conflict-induced displaced persons, the effects of internal displacement on neighbouring countries, gender issues within the context of IDPs, and the issue of adequate information to IDPs about why they are being displaced, and what their options are for return and resettlement.
