Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Very interesting... Highly informative.'
The Geographical Journal

'For anyone not well versed on the topic, this book provides a good overall view of the issues and areas involved in dealing with IDPs.'
Sustainable Communities Review

'The Norwegian Refugee Council should be congratulated for highlighting the plight of IDPs through its two surveys. It is to be hoped that it has done enough to shame the international community into fully recognising the magnitude and complexity of the problem.'
Development Policy Review
