Abstract (Original Language):

This chapter looks at legislative, regulatory, and policy approaches to ensure that internally displaced persons (IDPs) have access to livelihoods. This includes non-discriminatory access to waged employment as well as the means to establish and maintain self-employment; access to, and recognition of, professional and technical qualifications; access to labor markets during and after displacement; and measures to facilitate the transition from dependency on external assistance to economic self-reliance. It is written with a view to suggesting approaches to national legislators, policy makers, and implementers looking to give effect to the Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement (the Guiding Principles).
