The Impact of Armed Conflict on Displacement

Research output: Working paperDiscussion paper

Abstract

The review set out to collect, synthesise, and critically evaluate available academic, policy and practitioner research and evidence on the following questions: a) What are the overall trends in conflict and displacement evident in the last 25 years? How have levels, patterns and the impacts of both changed over time? b) What is the available evidence on the relationship between conflict and displacement? Do particular dynamics of conflict (different type, actors, intensity, etc.) shape specific patterns of displacement (duration, geography, dynamics, etc.)? What is the strength of this evidence, and what gaps remain in existing knowledge, evidence or practice on conflict and displacement? c) How does conflict affect different individuals’, groups’ and communities’ experience(s) of displacement? How does conflict affect issues of movement, including transnational refugee movements and internal displacement? How does conflict affect issues of integration, resettlement and/or return, across place (locations and their direct or indirect experience of conflict), time (at different stages or durations of conflict), and individuals or groups (for example, the diversity of experience by age or gender)? d) What existing initiatives or approaches have been undertaken to address or mitigate the impact of conflict on displacement, or support those directly affected by conflict and displacement? At what levels have these been undertaken, how successful have they been, and what gaps remain? What is the available evidence of good practices and successful models of durable solutions? e) What insights does this combined evidence provide into improving future actions and policy on conflict and displacement? How can CSOs, NGOs, policy makers and the wider humanitarian system work more effectively to support those directly affected by conflict and displacement?
