Bridging the gaps: Governance of protracted displacement across global, regional and national levels

The current institutional and governance system of displacement has become much more complex with the inclusion of ever more actors. But it still leaves open multiple gaps of protection. To close these protection gaps and to more effectively address protracted displacement, it requires a better collaboration and coordination between international, regional and domestic stakeholders, a long-term development rather than a short-term humanitarian approach and sincere recognition of displaced people’s rights and their mobility needs.

TRAFIG Practice Note No. 3 analyses the different regimes governing displacement and stresses that it is crucial to enable displaced people to access rights as the "Recognition of refugees’ rights has the potential to strengthen their contribution to the social and economic life of the country of reception and directly addresses the protracted nature of their displacement".
