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.
