Global Overview of Internal Displacement

The Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) has published its annual Global Overview 2011: People Internally Displaced by Conflict and Violence. The report finds that "a total of 26.4 million people were internally displaced in the world at the end of 2011. 3.5 million people were newly displaced during the year, 20 per cent more than in 2010; 830,000 of them fled the impact of the Arab Spring uprisings, an almost six­fold increase from the 177,000 newly displaced in 2010."

The full-text of the report is available here, along with a quick facts sheet and press pack.
