Domesticating the Kampala Convention: Law and Policy Making
October 2014

IDMC in partnership with the Liberia Refugee Resettlement and Rehabilitation Commission (LRRRC) organised a three-day training workshop for national law makers, government officials and members of the Liberian civil society with the aim of supporting the domestication of the Kampala Convention in Liberia. The event was an opportunity for various stakeholders to reflect on the development of a national internal displacement framework in line with the Kampala Convention. The workshop guided stakeholders through the possible stages of an ideal law/policy making exercise compliant with the Kampala Convention.

The current report, including recommendations, highlights the challenges that Liberia still faces in relation to past displacement and confirms the need for the country to equip itself with an appropriate instrument that may facilitate a coordinated response to present and possible future displacement situations.
