There are over 600,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) living in Azerbaijan who were forced to migrate due to the Armenian - Azerbaijani conflict (1988‒1994), which still remains unresolved. Due to the impasse in the peacemaking process, IDPs have been and will be the neediest social group in Azerbaijan for the foreseeable future. The crucial aim of the research is not only the widening of knowledge about the IDPs’ situation but also providing a better understanding of the domestic and international context of their displacement. The article concerns internal immigrants’ legal position, in the context of their socio-economic situation as well as political participation. IDPs in Azerbaijan are firstly subject to the domestic legal system and secondly to international law. The article examines the incorporation of the Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement into the Azerbaijani legal system. The research is based on international literature and documentation relating to the subject forced migrations, especially English resources.
