There are an estimated 13 million children across the world who have been forced to leave their homes by armed conflict and violence, but who remain within the borders of their own countries - often beyond the reach of international protection. Once displaced, many children spend at least six years away from their homes. Many live in fear, and are forced to move over and over again. This report aims to make these children count. It is part of Save the Children's campaign to persuade governments in the countries concerned, armed groups and the international community to take urgent action to protect internally displaced children. It highlights the situation in Angola, Colombia, Kosovo, Sierra Leone and Sri Lanka, and pinpoints the gaps between government's legal obligations to protect displaced children and the reality of displaced children's lives. It makes specific recommendations to improve international efforts to protect and assist displaced children.
