Dr Bríd Ní Ghráinne has been awarded funding for her project on the protection of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs)

Dr Bríd Ní Ghráinne will be recruiting an undergraduate law student to work with her on the project ‘Ulterior Motives: “Protecting” Internally Displaced Persons.’ Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) are persons who have been forced to leave their homes as a result of armed conflict, violence, human rights violations or natural or human-made disasters, but who remain within their country. IDPs have similar wants and fears as refugees. They also have similar needs, such as access to shelter, food, medicine, and protection from the effects of armed conflict. However, unlike refugees, IDPs have traditionally been ignored by the international community notwithstanding the fact that IDPs outnumber refugees by about 2:1 (numbering 40 million at the end of 2019).
