Government and Public Finance associate Chad Doobay recently released the final report related to his survey of residents of a center for the internally displaced in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Chad carried out his research through the Humanity in Action (HIA) organization, which seeks to educate and promote the protection of the human rights of minority groups. He traveled to Bosnia in 2010 and 2012 seeking to understand the reasons people remain in internal displacement nearly two decades after the signing of the Dayton Peace Accords in 1995.
Chad and colleagues from HIA surveyed the residents of one of Bosnia's 159 collective centers for the most vulnerable of the internally displaced in order to identify ways to achieve durable solutions. The report, provided to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Bosnia and others active in advocacy for the internally displaced in Bosnia, seeks to link the obligations and opportunities within international human rights law and international humanitarian law to the present situation for the most vulnerable of Bosnia's remaining internally displaced.
