About the Author

Romola Adeola, Senior Research Associate, Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), Refugee Law Initiative, University of London, UK, coordinates the Global Engagement Network on Internal Displacement in Africa (GENIDA) and is a Fellow at the Faculty of Law, University of Pretoria, South Africa


'Our planet counts over 45 million internally displaced persons. Internal displacement is complex and politically fraught, thus often overlooked. Dr Adeola has produced a highly informative compendium of the international, regional and especially - despite scarce sources - national legal regimes of all African countries, which allows for a much clearer picture of the frailty of their legal condition.'
--François Crépeau, McGill University, Canada'Everyone looking for a succinct but comprehensive overview of the law relevant for the protection of today's more than 40 million internally displaced persons should turn to this book. The author's focus on regional and African national perspectives is a particularly welcome contribution to the literature in this field.'
--Walter Kälin, University of Bern, Switzerland
