Since the 1970s, academics, practitioners and policy-makers from across the humanitarian and development fields have increasingly recognised the need to utilise rigorously collected and analysed data to develop appropriate responses to contexts of forced displacement. This report presents a comprehensive review of over 480 articles and reports published over the past forty years which analyse qualitative and quantitative data pertaining to the impact of displacement on the following key stakeholders: displaced populations (refugees and internally-displaced people); host populations; host state; country of origin and stayee population in the country of origin; and the international community.
