Abstract
World history has witnessed the creation of a large number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) and refugees as a result of most of major conflicts in the different regions. The issues relating to both internal and external displacements have proved to be a major deterrent for sustaining peace in many of the countries and continents. Apart from the humanitarian aspects involved in resettling the IDPs and refugees, the displaced population has been the cause of many crimes and for exacerbation of further conflicts. Therefore, it has been recognized that solutions to displacement also play important parts in peace building. In all, security of the displaced populations, property issues, reintegration of the displaced groups into society, and conflict between international intervention and national sovereignty are particularly important.
