Latest GRID figures analysis

IDMC’s estimates include several different caseloads, including one prior to 2016, reported by Haceteppe University in 2006. IDMC’s figures are also based on more up-to-date information obtained from the International Crisis Group and a Turkish NGO that covers the end of 2015 to 2016. This data covers three cities in southeastern Turkey where round-the-clock ‘curfews’ were put into place, forcing people to flee.
