Forced Migrants: Refugees And Internally Displaced Persons

Forced Migrants: Refugees And Internally Displaced Persons

Social Injustice and Public Health

Michael Toole

Oxford University Press

This chapter addresses social injustice in relation to forced migrants (refugees and internally displaced persons). It addresses the effects of social injustice on the health of refugees and internally displaced persons, including the impact of violence and various direct and indirect impacts on health. It describes roots and underlying issues, including poor health as a risk factor for conflict and international responses to homelessness, as well as what needs to be done. The chapter concludes that the plight of homeless people can be addressed only if the international community is serious about addressing the root causes of poverty, poor governance, exploitation, and inequities between rich and poor countries.

Keywords:   forced migration, refugees, internally displaced persons, violence, population movements, human rights, war, poverty
