Challenges of cyclical displacement in south eastern Myanmar

18 Dec 19

In partnership with The Border Consortium (TBC), the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) released a publication entitled “BEFORE YOU WERE BORN, YOUR MOTHER RAN” - Displacement and disillusion in south-east Myanmar.

The publication documented a research undertaken with the aim of analysing the relationship between internal
displacement, cross-border movements and durable solutions in south-east Myanmar. Based on 163 interviews with internally displaced people (IDPs), returning refugees and refugees conducted by TBC, the report examines drivers of displacement, priorities and preconditions for voluntary return, and obstacles and opportunities for durable solutions.

The report is available in English language and can be downloaded here.
