IOM Iraq releases the new “Iraq Displacement Crisis 2014-17” report
The new “Iraq Displacement Crisis 2014-17” report contextualizes the population movements that occurred as a result of the ISIL crisis as a whole. The ISIL crisis is considered the worst displacement crisis in the recent history of Iraq, with 15% of the country’s population fleeing their homes.
The study provides an overview of the full crisis throughout its phases – starting in December 2013 with the battle for Fallujah in Anbar, to Prime Minister Al Abadi declaring victory over ISIL in December 2017 – as well as detailed information on localized emergencies. It also analyzes the evolution in number of hosted internally displaced persons (IDPs), the changes in their sectorial needs and shelter arrangements and the areas of displacement. For the first time, the relative burden of displacement in the areas hosting IDPs is analyzed divided in three regions: KRI, North Central and South.
