New Edition of IDMC's Global Overview

The Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) has published the 2012 edition of its annual Global Overview: People Internally Displaced by Conflict and Violence.  The report estimates a record-high total IDP population of 28.8 million last year, due in large part to the conflicts in Syria and the DRC.  Here's more about the contents:
The report’s introduction begins by outlining the scale and impact of internal displacement during the year, and includes a ‘snapshot’ of internal displacement in 2012 before exploring some of the key issues and challenges associated with internal displacement at the national, regional and global level. Five regional summaries are followed by descriptions of internal displacement situations in countries of those regions.

Press releases, maps and infographics in English, French and Spanish are available here.  Previous editions of the Global Overview can be retrieved via my forced migration research guide.
