Violence in the City: A Systematic Review of the Drivers of Violence against Displaced Populations in Urban Crisis and Post-crisis Settings

This report published by IRC provides a Systematic Review of the Drivers of Violence against Displaced Populations in Urban Crisis and Post-crisis Settings.

Most urban refugees and those internally displaced are relocated to already fragile communities characterised by over-crowding, scarce employment opportunities, and limited access to services and resources. This has important implications for the social and economic vulnerability of new arrivals and the host population.  Despite this new evidence, there remains limited knowledge of effective violence prevention interventions for use by humanitarian organisations working with refugee and displaced populations.
