IDMC identified the need to develop and test a methodology to assess the number and situation of IDPs in urban centres, to complement the Guidance on Profiling Internally Displaced Persons. The resulting Tufts-IDMC profiling study aims ultimately to help all organisations which assist and promote the rights of IDPs in conflict-affected countries to collect and analyse information on people displaced into cities.

The project

IDMC managed the project in partnership with the Feinstein International Center at Tufts University in the United States.
