Internal displacement in South Asia: the relevance of the UN's guiding principles
This book deals with the situation of internally displaced people - those who have been forcibly displaced by natural disasters or development projects.
Each chapter is a case study authored by specialists from seven countries - India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Mayanmar and Afghanistan. The latter two countries have been included for their shared ethnic continuities with people of the neighbouring countries. The authors provide recommendations on how to minimize the insecurity of the displaced, as well as suggesting early warning systems as preventive measures to forestall displacement at the outset.
