Global Report on Internal Displacement

The 2017 Global Report on Internal Displacement (GRID 2017) presents the latest data and trends of internal displacement by conflict and disasters worldwide.

20th Anniversary

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the adoption of the UN Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement, and of IDMC itself. At IDMC we start the new year with renewed energy and determination. We commit to elevating the issue of internal displacement within the debates on displacement and migration that have dominated the post-2015 global policy agenda and that have, to date, excluded the tens of millions of people who live in displacement within the borders of their own countries and receive little political attention or support.

Country profiles

We provide quantitative analysis on internal displacement in 169 countries

Global Database

Our database captures data from sources and partners and gives free access to internal displacement related information. It covers all countries and territories for which we have obtained data on internal displacement
