Summary

This report, submitted in accordance with Human Rights Council resolution 14/6, provides an account of the activities of the mandate and the Special Rapporteur on the human rights of internally displaced persons, Chaloka Beyani, during the reporting period. It also provides a thematic analysis of the particular situation of internally displaced persons living outside of camps or compact settlements, and whose assistance and protection needs are often neglected. The Special Rapporteur examines the various factors responsible for this situation, the particular nature of displacement in urban contexts, the role of host communities and local authorities, and offers recommendations for a more effective, systematized and equitable response to internally displaced persons outside camps, and the host communities assisting them.
