News: New Edition of Global Overview on Internal Displacement

The Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) has published a new edition of its annual report, Global Overview 2014: People Internally Displaced by Conflict and Violence.  The report covers "internal displacement in 2013 [and] highlights that a full 63% of the record breaking 33.3 million internally displaced people (IDPs) reported worldwide, come from just five countries: Syria, Colombia, Nigeria, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Sudan."  More key facts and figures can be found in this "At a Glance" overview, map, and infographic.

Previous editions of the Global Overview can be retrieved via my forced migration research guide. One note to librarians: This year's report includes 2014 in its title, even though it surveys the situation in 2013. Past editions included the year that was covered in the title, i.e., the Global Overview 2012 reported on 2012 events but was published in 2013.  Because of this slight change, there is no report entitled Global Overview 2013!
