Keywords:United Nations, refugees, internally displaced persons, IDPs, return, restitution, human rights
This article reviews recent developments at the United Nations on housing and property restitution for the return of refugees and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPS). In August 1998 the UN Sub-Commission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights took an innovative step towards facilitating the voluntary return of refugees and IDPS with the adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 1998/26. A descriptive analysis of that resolution and the subsequent developments at the United Nations are presented. Further, the article advocates and solicits support for continued United Nations developments in this regard.
