From the editors

The striking fact that for the first time in human history there are now more people living in towns and cities than outside them is not in itself a reason for FMR to be covering urban displacement. Behind that fact, however, lies the multiplicity of reasons why people have been moving into urban environments and the reality that for many of them it is not a matter of choice.

Relatively little is known about the precise numbers of those forcibly displaced into urban settings, their demographics, basic needs or protection problems.
