Forced displacement in the Central African Republic (CAR) – along with deaths, physical injuries and material destruction – is one of the main consequences of more than a decade of political instability caused by a series of mutinies, military coup attempts and armed conflicts. The number of internally displaced people (IDPs) is reported to have tripled during 2006, from 50,000 in April to an estimated 150,000 at the end of the year. This increase is largely due to persistent insecurity in the north of the country where the government is fighting several rebel groups. Roaming bandits (so called coupeurs de route or Zaraguinas) and livestock thieves also plague the north, where the state presence – as in much of the rest of the country outside the capital – is weak or non-existent.
