The populations that were forcibly displaced, as a results of the events taking place between 1998 and 1999 and in 2004 in Kosovo, have been facing a protracted displacement situation. Securing sustainable solutions to this situation has been a key concern for both authorities and international duty bearers. So far,emphasis has primarily been placed on returns (both to and within Kosovo), with less focus on other solutions.
However, a more comprehensive approach to addressing displacement would strengthen policy-making capacities.To this end, a better understanding of the internal displacement situation would be a key contribution. This would include both an assessment of the extent to which durable solutions have been achieved and an account ofthe intentions of internally displaced persons (IDPs) in pursuing their preferred durable solution.
This profiling exercise of the displaced populations in Kosovo was hence initiated to inform policy work on durable solutions, including the above-mentioned durable solutions strategy planned by the MCR, by providing an evidence-based analysis of the displacement situation, according to the IASC Framework on DurableSolutions for IDPs2.
