IDMC’s estimate of the number of IDPs in Cyprus is based on the “‘Humanitarian needs and rights of internally displaced persons in Europe” recommendation report (document N° 2126) which was presented in 2018 on the 20th anniversary of the adoption of the Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.
