Title

Internal displacement : the link between government inefficienncy and forced migration

Abstract

This research examines the correlation between government Ineptitude and the rise of internal displacement as an international phenomenon by using Burma, Colombia and Sudan as models for the crisis, as they are nations deeply affected by inefficient governments and constant civil strife. There ls a very strong parallel between the magnitude of displacement and the rote the government plays in igniting, or preventing, conflict in each respective area. These governments have played an active role In the internal displacement crisis by pursuing, encouraging and supporting policies of forced migrations. Internal displacement, like any other socio-political phenomenon, is a consequence of multiple intricately connected factors, but It Is within domestic governments that the power to constrain or ameliorate the effects of these factors lies, and for this reason they should be looked to when searching for solutions. Analyzing this link can provide a lesson on how the international community should respond to the problem and how reintegration, resettlement and involving local populations in the protection of their own rights, can reduce the crisis.
