Practice Relating to Rule 132. Return of Displaced Persons
Section A. Conditions for return
In 1993 and 1995, during debates in the UN Security Council on the situation in Georgia and in the former Yugoslavia respectively, France supported the right to return of refugees and displaced persons.
According to the Report on the Practice of France, the free return of refugees is a frequent preoccupation of French diplomacy. France often asks for this right to be guaranteed and considers a contrary attitude to be “unacceptable”.
