Africa: in search of safety: the forcibly displaced and human rights in Africa

This report describes the causes of forced displacement in Africa and the special vulnerability of African refugees and internally displaced people to human rights abuse. It points to the failure to give sufficient priority to human rights issues in the search for solutions to refugees’ problems, often for reasons of economic and political expediency. It calls on governments and international institutions to reaffirm their commitment to the protection of refugees and to take a more active role in protecting the rights of the internally displaced.
