FMO Research Guide: Internal Displacement -
By Cathrine Brun. Oxford: Forced Migration Online, October 2005. The aim of this research guide is to give an introduction to some of the
main debates regarding internal displacement. Although the guide concentrates on conflict induced internal displacement, causes of internal displacement
