Conflict-induced IDPs and the spread of conflict

Published in The Journal of conflict resolution. 2018, vol. 62, no. 4, p. 691-716
Abstract Recent scholarship has found evidence that refugee flows may inadvertently contribute to the spread of conflict across borders. Little is known, however, about the spatial diffusion of conflict within a state's borders and what role internal displacement plays in such a dynamic. This question is of relevance because of the particular marginalization of IDPs, which make them at risk of predation and militarization by armed groups. Drawing on a novel global dataset on internal displacement, we evaluate this question and find evidence for a similar mechanism leading to conflict spread operating at the domestic level.
