Overview


* 25 million internal refugees worldwide
* The ONLY comprehensive information source on conflict-induced internally displaced people
* Information from 47 countries
Today, the number of internally displaced people, estimated to be at least 25 million, far outnumbers estimated refugees who have fled their countries. Still, the majority of displaced populations survive with very little security or legal protection. Responding to the needs of internally displaced people is one of the greatest humanitarian challenges of our time. Substantially revised and updated from the first edition, this book includes information on internal displacement in forty-seven different countries across the globe � that is to say all countries currently experiencing conflict-induced displacement � including essential information on causes of displacement, patterns of flight, protection concerns and international response.
