The number of internally displaced people far outnumbers estimated refugees who have fled their countries. 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.;Revised and updated from the first edition, this volume includes information on internal displacement in 47 different countries across the globe - that is to say all countries experiencing conflict-induced displacement at the time of publication. There is discussion of the causes of displacement, patterns of flight, protection concerns and international response.

Norwegian Refugee Council has worked for over 50 years to provide humanitarian assistance to people fleeing their homes, and to defend their human rights.
Global IDP Project has advocated for the improved protection and assistance of internally displaced people since 1998.
'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
