Escaping war: where to next? - A research study on the challenges of IDP protection in Afghanistan
This new report from IDMC and NRC presents the findings of a comprehensive assessment of the protection needs of internally displaced people across Afghanistan. This follows on from a similar assessment carried out in 2012 when NRC/IDMC published the first in-depth study looking at the impact of displacement for Afghans.
The report confirms that the ongoing conflict has taken on worrying intensity in parts of the country and is bearing a heavy cost on civilians. Since 2012, one alarming trend has been a sharp and steady growth in the levels of internal and external displacement: in the past five years a total of 1.7 million Afghans have been displaced - three times as many IDPs than we reported on five years ago
IDMC's thematic series: UnSettlement - urban displacement in the 21st century
Introducing a new thematic series, “UnSettlement: Urban displacement in the 21st Century”, to explore the scale, nature and dynamics of urban internal displacement across the world. We are also including the first case study of the thematic series, exploring the challenges and opportunities for IDPs in Maiduguri, Nigeria and their participation in the city’s economy. http://www.internal-displacement.org/library/publications/2018/unsettlement-urban-displacement-in-the-21st-century?ref=mailchimp#ts-us-nigeria
