Political solutions needed to “unlock” African displacement crisis

Political solutions need to be found to “unlock” the crisis of displacement in Africa, according to a UN Special Rapporteur who focuses on the human rights of internally displaced persons, or IDPs.

Protracted conflict and insecurity has caused millions of people to flee their homes in South Sudan, Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Central African Republic.

Unlike refugees, IDPs remain in the own country.

Daniel Dickinson asked UN Special Rapporteur Chaloka Beyani why there are still so many IDPs across the continent.
