Twenty years after the introduction of the UN Guiding Principles for the Protection of Internally Displaced Persons , very little is known about their effectiveness in altering state behavior towards their displaced populations. In this book Gabriel Cardona-Fox takes a systematic and global first look at patterns of commitment and compliance with the IDP regime. Through the innovative use of statistical analysis on all documented cases of displacement and an in-depth case study of Colombia's evolving response towards internal displacement, this book identifies the domestic and international forces that drive some states to institute and comply with these guidelines. Exile Within Borders fills an important gap in the literature and moves the debate over the regime's effectiveness beyond anecdotal evidence.
