Wereldwijd geweld veroorzaakt recordaantal intern ontheemden

May 14, 2024 - Conflict drove the number of internally displaced people across the world to a record high of nearly 76 million at the end of 2023, according to a top migration monitoring group

The Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre report found that the number of internally displaced people, or IDPs, has jumped by 50% over the past five years and roughly doubled in the past decade. It doesn’t cover refugees — displaced people who fled to another country.

Some 75.9 million people were living in internal displacement at the end of last year, the report said, with half of those in sub-Saharan African countries.

Almost 90% of the total displacement was attributed to conflict and violence, while some 10% stemmed from the impact of natural disasters.
