Main Article Content
The birth of this journal arose from the severe lack and neglect by academics, researchers, public institutions, private organizations and not-for-profit agencies to prioritize discourses on this marginalized populations by way of centralizing debates, ideas, and concerns on IDPs into a organized but diverse funnel of thoughts. It can be argued that the gradual decrease in global refugees populations is, in part, attributed to the protraction of IDP populations especially knowing that the number of violent conflicts globally (especially in Africa) have remained the same if not increased. There is no better way to initiate this discussion except for launching the Journal of Internal Displacement Inaugural Volume 1. The aim of this first volume is to provoke thoughts and tease out ideas around the definitions, scopes, theories and conceptual framework of internal displacement.
