Event description

Description

Internal displacement is a major humanitarian, human rights and security issue globally. The concept of ‘internally displaced persons’ (IDPs) distinguishes between refugees and the persons uprooted from their habitual residence due to conflict, human rights violations, natural disasters or development projects, and those who remain and/or are contained within the national boundaries of their home country (Deng 1999; Cohen 2006). Contrary to popular belief, there are far more IDPs than refugees in the world today (Ferris, Mooney and Stark 2011). According to figures released by the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC), by the end of 2016, 40.3 million people were internally displaced by conflict and violence across the world and an unknown number remain displaced as a result of disasters that occurred in and prior to 2016. The scale of the problem is challenging the capacity of humanitarian organisations and governments to respond to the needs of IDPs.

This conference will present a collection of papers focused on internal displacement in the Middle East.
