IDMC’s estimate of the total number of IDPs in Bosnia and Herzegovina is based on official government statistics, which rely largely on lists from the electoral commission. The Permanent Mission of Bosnia and Herzegovina to the UN in Geneva shared the statistics with IDMC. The displacement was triggered by wars that followed the dissolution of the former Yugoslavia, and the displacement data was last updated in 2015. More than half of the country’s IDPs live in Republika Srpska, more than a third in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and a minority in the Brcko district.
