The Many Faces of Displacement: Pervasive Violence and the Dissolution of a Liveable Life in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

From Iraq to Afghanistan and Syria, war and violent conflict remain the main reasons behind the continuing prevalence of forced displacement and flight around the world. What current research tends to neglect is the pervasive impact these violent upheavals have on all layers of human life, by weakening the social fabric, undermining economic wellbeing and creating a climate of fear and mistrust. This chapter analyses several intersecting push-factors behind displacement and flight with a focus on Iraq, complemented by insights on Syria and Afghanistan.
