Migrationcaused by conflict consists of two main traits: the violence that led to theimmigration, and the characteristics of the migration or displacement crisisthat resulted. According to Fisas (2004), armed conflict is the confrontationthat occurs between two or more organized groups, or against a government, andthe war-related death toll is above 100.
These disputes could be caused byethnic differences or social and civil unsuitability. The StockholmInternational Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), declared that most violentconflicts that occurred after 1945 are classified under three divisions:disputes between states, internal conflicts, and conflicts from the formationof states. In comparison to migration that happens during times of relativepeace, movement during battle is usually extreme, sudden, and the displacedcivilians are less prepared for life in the regions to which they escape.Studies show that most refugees typically have a significant impact on thesocio-economic status of the areas they inhabit (Chambers, 1986).This migration also affects the life of the immigrants significantly; shapingtheir family bonds, exploitation of economic resources and strategies, andencourages the optimization of new ideas (Durand, William, Emilio, & Douglas, 1996).
