Norwegian Refugee Council: A record 38 million internally displaced worldwide

A record-breaking 38 million people have been displaced within their own country by conflict or violence. This is the equivalent of the total populations of London, New York and Beijing combined.

“These are the worst figures for forced displacement in a generation, signalling our complete failure to protect innocent civilians” said Secretary General Jan Egeland.

Today, the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC), part of NRC, launched its Global Overview 2015: People internally displaced by conflict and violence at the United Nations in Geneva. With internal displacement figures reaching a record high for the third year in a row, the report also documents that 11 million people were newly displaced by violent events throughout 2014.
