Beschreibung:

Ethnic conflict is the most common type of internal armed conflict inthe world. It is also the major source of most of the world\'s external
and internal refugees. In 2003, Asia-Pacific was the region second
most affected by conflict-induced displacement and in 2004 it had the
second largest global number of internal refugees following Africa.
Given this trend, it is surprising that a relative lack of research
has been conducted about ethnic conflict and refugees within this
region compared to other areas. This book develops a theoretical model
which analyses variations in external and internal refugee numbers. It
applies the model to specific ethnic conflicts in Fiji, Indonesia, the
Philippines, and the Solomon Islands during the period 1995 ? 2005 and
identifies a common set of factors conducive to creating internal and
external refugees. The findings emphasise that no single-factor
explanation exists that can explain how refugees are created. The
analysis will be particularly useful for government policy makers and
non-governmental workers in highlighting ways they can assist in
reducing refugee flows in order to create greater regional stability.
