Internal Displacement Conference



Internal Displacement Conference 

18 October 2018 | Domaine de Penthes, Geneva


This year, 2018, marks the 20th anniversary of the Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement, as well the 20th anniversary of the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC); established in 1998 as the world's authoritative source of data, research and analysis on internal displacement. To mark the occasion, IDMC invites you to an interdisciplinary conference that will bring together insights from new research on human mobility, economics and sustainable development, with the experience of humanitarian and development practitioners, policy makers and donors.
With a focus on the Sustainable Development Goals directly related to internal displacement and corresponding national priorities, the conference will explore what it means to integrate the concern for reducing internal displacement into national development and economic planning today and in the future.
The day will conclude with a reception to celebrate the double anniversary of the Guiding Principles and of IDMC.


For its next issue, the Journal of Internal Displacement is collaborating with IDMC to build on the outcomes from the conference, as well as inviting additional contributions that explore how internal displacement concerns fit into national and global sustainable development efforts and the UN prevention agenda.
