Building the Resilience of Internally Displaced Persons in Nigeria

Internal displacement has become an unlikely source of rapid urbanization. Specifically, as people affected by violent conflict in rural areas flee to seek refuge, they are finding cities to be an attractive destination.

Cities, on the other hand, have more government presence and are able to be more resilient to sustained insurgent activities that lead to mass displacement.
