Protracted internal displacement

image of Protracted internal displacement

Conflict- and violence-induced internal displacement was at its highest recorded level ever in 2015, with some 40.8 million IDPs in 52 countries. This number has doubled over the past 15 years and far surpasses the global number of refugees. Armed conflict in the Middle East and elsewhere has forced millions of families to flee in recent years. In 2015 alone, 8.6 million people were newly displaced in 28 countries. In addition, although refugee returns have been at an all-time low in recent years, refugees who manage to repatriate are still often unable to return home and subsequently join IDPs in protracted displacement in another part of the country.
