New Federations: Internally Displaced People (IDPs) and Durable Solutions to Displacement in Federal Systems
The project investigates how new post-conflict federations manage (or not) the return of IDPs who are people who have not crossed an internationally recognized border to find safety and do not fall within the mandate of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. The project researches communities in federal transitions aiming to maximize the effectiveness of federal institutions in engaging with victim groups particularly IDPs. It examines the impact of social and technological innovations in federal design and sustainable returns particularly on social cohesion, urban regeneration and integrative educational systems aiming at the restoration of multi-ethnic and sustainable communities.
