Violence & Armed Conflict: Causes of Displacement

A UNHCR expert meeting on the International Protection of Persons Fleeing Armed Conflict and Other Situations of Violence was hosted by the Refugee Rights Unit at the University of Cape Town, 13-14 September 2012.  Here is some background information that provides context for why the meeting was convened:
The second half of the 20th century saw an unparalleled number of armed conflicts and other forms of violent situations leading to mass displacement across borders. While the number of ‘traditional’ armed conflicts may have decreased since the mid-1990s, there have been changes in the causes, character and effects of these conflicts and the emergence of a range of other situations of violence. Armed conflicts are increasingly characterized by widespread violence leaving, at times, little distinction between combatants and civilians. They are pursued for a multiplicity of motivations – ethnic/nationalist, social, economic and political. In many countries, a perpetual cycle of violence and conflict has been part of daily reality. In situations such as in Central Iraq, Central and Southern Somalia, parts of Afghanistan, Colombia and Mexico, violence is also often protracted and intractable, both as part of armed conflicts as well as separate from them, and exacerbated by fragile governance systems.
     As a matter of morality, no one can contest that people should not be returned to dangers to their lives or freedoms, yet the international refugee protection regime is not open-ended and some gaps in the application of the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees (“1951 Convention”) and its 1967 Protocol have emerged to exclude from protection persons fleeing some of the major threats to human security in the 21st century. (Source: Concept Note)

The aim of the roundtable was to help "clarify the interpretation and application of international and regional refugee instruments to people fleeing armed conflict and other situations of violence across international borders, including foremost the application of the 1951 Convention and/1967 Protocol."  The ultimate goal will be to develop Guidelines on International Protection on this issue.

Documents from this meeting were recently posted on the UNHCR web site and include Summary Conclusions which will help to inform the development of future Guidelines.
