The purpose of this project was to show how the Ukrainian government has delegitimized itself currently in the eyes of the Ukrainian People through its handling of the internal displacement problem. To show this, this thesis analyzes Ukrainian legislation passed pertaining to internally displaced people and how these pieces of legislation have been ineffective at producing any significant change in the IDP problem. In certain cases, this legislation is correlated with an increase in the number of IDPs. Further, this thesis analyzes the decline in public opinion of Ukrainian citizens with the government. Through interviews of different human rights organizations and displaced people, evidence is provided for this decline. Due to the contemporary nature of this topic, it would be preemptive to make any final conclusions at this point in time. Rather, this thesis is intended to give an update on present events and provide possible solutions to a current problem.
