Iraq: Rhetoric and reality: the Iraqi refugee crisis

By AI International Secretariat, , Index number: MDE 14/011/2008

The displacement crisis caused by the US-led invasion of Iraq and the subsequent internal armed conflict has reached shocking proportions. Millions of people at risk have fled their homes and most are now struggling to survive. The crisis for Iraq’s refugees and internally displaced is one of tragic proportions. Despite this, the world’s governments have done little or nothing to help. Amnesty International is greatly concerned that the failure to respond to this crisis will continue to erode the human rights protection for those forced to flee their homes in search of safety.
