Ethiopia: Border war and ethnic clashes leave over 150,000 internally displaced

There is no available official number of people internally displaced by conflict in Ethiopia. This is mainly due to the fact that information on internal displacement provided by the federal government on the one hand and the local authorities on the other is contradictory.

Profile of Internal Displacement: Cote d'Ivoire (May 2005)

After more than two years of intermittent conflict that effectively split Côte d’Ivoire in half and sparked fears of ethnic cleansing, the country’s 500,000 IDPs may finally have a glimmer of hope for a more peaceful future. A shaky peace process, pushed in recent months by South African president Thabo Mbeki, has gained some momentum. Ivorian president Laurent Gbagbo has bowed to international pressure to allow his main rival, Alassane Ouattara, to stand against him in elections scheduled for October 2005.

Profile of Internal Displacement: Cyprus

Close to a quarter of the inhabitants of Cyprus – 210,000 ethnic Greek and Turkish Cypriots – have been internally displaced for over 30 years. This constitutes the longest-standing internal displacement situation in Europe. Unlike the vast majority of protracted displacements in the world though, internally displaced people (IDPs) in Cyprus no longer have pressing humanitarian needs.

Profile of Internal Displacement: Republic of Congo (Brazzaville)

Civil conflict hit the Republic of Congo intermittently in the decade after 1992, the year of the first democratic elections. Most of the around 800,000 people who were displaced at the peak of the fighting in 1998 had either returned or settled down in their areas of displacement when hostilities broke out again in March 2002. The renewed fighting sent between 100,000 and 150,000 people, mainly Lari from the hard-hit Pool region surrounding the capital Brazzaville, fleeing from their homes.

Algeria: Slow IDP return to rural areas

After a dark decade of civil war between government forces and islamist extremist groups, violence in Algeria has decreased significantly over the past few years. Between 1992 and 2002, fighting and attacks targeting the civil population forced large numbers of Algerians to flee rural areas and find security in nearby urban centres.
