Displaced in Cities: Experiencing and Responding to Urban Internal Displacement Outside Camps

This research is the fruit of a joint project between the divisions of protection and of policy and humanitarian diplomacy at the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), with significant support from the organization’s economic security and water and habitat units and ICRC delegations across the world. It received some financial sup- port from the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs through its Human Security Division. This report was written by Catherine-Lune Grayson, policy adviser, and Angela Cotroneo, global adviser on internal displacement, who also co-led the project. We benefited from the precious assistance of field colleagues in Honduras, Iraq, Nigeria and Somalia, without whom the case studies would not have been possible. We are immensely grate- ful to the persons we met during the case studies – to displaced persons and host community members for their trust and for sharing their experiences with us, and to the representatives of authorities and other organizations for sharing their perspec- tives on the response to displacement.
