Forcible displacement caused by armed conflict and serious human rights violations presents a significant moral and legal challenge that the existing international legal standards remain inadequate to fully address. Importantly, the notion of an individual right not to be displaced under international law has been neglected. This chapters addresses this gap by establishing that contemporary international law recognises an individual right to be protected from forced displacement. It aims to show that such a right, albeit not absolute, has its grounding in international human rights law, international humanitarian law and international criminal law and is now well embedded in international customary law.
