In the recent period of armed conflict in Turkey, between two and half and three million people have been forced to leave their homes and move elsewhere.

A systematic and realistic approach has not been developed by the authorities to define and solve this problem so far. Under the influence of ongoing and finalized cases in the European Court of Human Rights over internal displacement, and as Turkey took the issue of internally displaced persons (IDPs) into its program as a consequence of the accession to the EU, Turkish Parliament passed the Law number 5233 on ‘Compensation of Losses Resulting from Terrorist Acts and Measures Taken against Terrorism.”
