Profile of Internal Displacement: Mexico

Violent land disputes have traditionally caused displacement on a small scale in Mexico. However, more substantial internal displacement took place during the 1990s because of the armed conflict between the insurgents, "Zapatista Army of National Liberation" (EZLN) and the Mexican army. The conflict has forced large groups of mostly indigenous peasants from the southern state of Chiapas to flee their homes.
