This book examines the African Union Convention on the Protection and Assistance of Internally Displaced Persons (hereafter Kampala Convention) which entered into force on 6 December 2012. The book sets out the shortcomings of international law relating to internal displacement, more specifically the 'protection gap'. The author shows how the Kampala Convention not only fills 'the protection gap' that exists in international law, but also how it contributes to the overall development of norms in international, regional and national laws, governing internal displacement. The book is of interest to scholars interested in international law and human rights.
