The Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) is the world’s authoritative source of data and analysis on internal displacement. Since our establishment in 1998 as part of the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), we have offered a rigorous, independent and trusted service to the international community. Our work informs policy and operational decisions that improve the lives of the millions of people living in internal displacement, or at risk of becoming displaced in the future.
IDMC will be leading on work package 7, shedding light on the displacement continuum by assessing continuity between internal displacement and international mobility along the voluntary to forced migration continuum. In coordination with Sciences Po, France’s National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), and the University of Liège, empirical field research in two different contexts – the greater Horn of Africa and the Lake Chad Basin – will map the drivers, patterns and processes behind onward internal and cross-border movements with systemic analyses of the environmental, socioeconomic, political and security variables that prompt, force or hinder forced migration.
