Protracted Displacement In Iraq: Revisiting Categories Of Return Barriers

Since the 1970s, significant waves of displacement have taken place across Iraq in response to security threats linked to internal conflict, external intervention, as well as ethnic and religious persecution—including most recently the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Between January 2014 and December 2017, ISIL’s attempts to control central and northern areas of the country, and the efforts of the Iraqi Government’s military to re-gain control, led to the displacement of 5,836,350 individuals—representing 16 per cent of the entire population of the country.
