Abstract

This Chapter analyses the legal regime governing transfer, deportation and forcible displacement of civilians in times of armed conflicts. It does not only provide an in-depth commentary of the relevant provisions under international humanitarian law; it also details the role of other applicable branches of international law, such as international refugee law, human rights law and criminal law. This inclusive approach offers a comprehensive and systemic overview of the international protection against forcible displacement in times of armed conflict.

Keywords: Transfer, deportation, forcible displacement, refugee, humanitarian law, refugee law, human rights law, non-refoulement, expulsion, extradition, occupied territory, military occupation, evacuation, armed conflict, war crime, genocide, crime against humanity, collective expulsion
