Worldwide conflict continues to force the migration of citizens seeking safety, shelter, and stability. This conflict-induced migration has social and economic impacts not only on the individuals and families that are forced to flee but also on the communities and environment.

Examining the Social and Economic Impacts of Conflict-Induced Migration is an essential reference source that examines the theoretical and practical basis of induced migration in regions under conflict and the impact of sociology and economy on this type of relocation and how it can be managed for global sustainable peace. Featuring research on topics such as conflict theory, media agenda, and state economics, this book is ideally designed for sociologists, economists, policymakers, government functionaries, peace keepers, non-governmental organizations, academicians, researchers, and students.
