Summary: “This report is … meant to provide all those concerned with the situation of internal displacement in Afghanistan, chief among them national policy and lawmakers, relevant ministries, and civil society organizations, with guidance in realizing national responsibility for the protection of IDPs in accordance with the Guiding Principles. It intends to do so by first discussing the core benchmarks of national responsibility, including the development and implementation of legal and policy frameworks that may be used to uphold the rights of the internally displaced in Afghanistan. The report also identifies and briefly describes specific activities undertaken by Afghan authorities in these core areas of national responsibility. The final section of this report identifies specific provisions of Afghan law that can contribute to the protection of IDPs.”—(P. 8).
