International Conference (special section): External and Internal Displacement – Impacts and Lessons Learned from Resettlement Processes

The Regional Studies Association, an international institution based in England, is organizing a special session entitled “External and Internal Displacement: Impacts and Lessons Learned from Resettlement Processes” in the conference: “New Pressures on Cities and Regions” to be held in London, UK on 24- 25 November 2016.

This session aims to provide a review of the resettlement processes and programs on the mass displacement of people throughout the contemporary era. Worldwide, this review can give a solid ground for further innovations for this kind of crises in terms of a better life for all; the hosted and comer. The primary focus is on both displaced people whether they are internally displaced persons (IDPs) or externally displaced persons (refugees) and their impacts on the host territory of displacement. The internally displaced persons, on one hand, have not crossed an international boundary, but have, for whatever reason, fled their homes, causing internal demographic flows. On the other hand, different nations witnessed (and are witnessing) several flows of refugees. Both types of flows have their impacts on the host communities that they end up settling, affecting, for example, their socio-economic aspects, their built environment and reshaping of Human settlements, to mention a few.
