Summary/Abstract: The number of internally displaced persons is on a global rise – and the legal framework offering protection to IDPs is far from catching up with the ever increasing number of persons suffering from displacement. The institutional framework which is supposed to provide protection to IDPs is not more advanced either, with an ever increasingly complex environment of protection actors. How does this complexity affect IDPs and how do international organizations optimize their actions in order to efficiently reach IDPs on the ground? The article focuses on the mandates of the UNHCR and the ICRC, two of the largest international entities protecting internally displaced persons all over the world. It analyses the legal framework of the two organizations, and the likely / synergies between their work, ultimately allowing them to better tailor their response to displacement.
