About the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre
The Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre, established in 1998 by the Norwegian Refugee Council, is the leading international body monitoring conflict-induced internal displacement worldwide.
Through its work, the Centre contributes to improving national and international capaci- ties to protect and assist the millions of people around the globe who have been displaced within their own country as a result of conflicts or human rights violations.
At the request of the United Nations, the Geneva-based Centre runs an online database providing comprehensive information and analysis on internal displacement in some 50 countries.
Based on its monitoring and data collection activities, the Centre advocates for durable solutions to the plight of the internally displaced in line with international standards.
The Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre also carries out training activities to en- hance the capacity of local actors to respond to the needs of internally displaced people. In its work, the Centre cooperates with and provides support to local and national civil society initiatives.
