Human Rights, Refugees and Internally Displaced Persons: The UN Commission on Ruman Rights

Tim Wichert

Abstract


This article argues that protecting refugees
and internally displaced persons
(IDPs) is an issue of universal human
rights. It then suggests the urgent need
for the UN Commission on Human
Rights, working in collaboration with
the United Nations High Commissioner
for Refugees (UNHCR) and
member states of the United Nations, to
play more important roles in protecting
and enhancing human rights. It also
stresses the importance of appropriate
follow-up to the calls for more commitment
and better actions in this area.
