Decades of insecurity and violence have led to the displacement of millions of Iraqi men, women and children. About half remain within the borders of Iraq as internally displaced persons (IDPs), while the other half live in countries throughout the region.
There is a lot of talk these days about the prospects for the large-scale return of refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) to Iraq. More than four million Iraqis have been displaced, either internally as IDPs or externally as refugees. Most fled their communities since the US invasion in 2003 and especially in the aftermath of the sectarian violence that erupted after the bombing of the al-Askari mosque in Samarra in February 2006.
