Assoc. Prof. Hind Bushra Ahmed
The paper explores how the establishment of a IDPs camp has impacted the hosting community of Nyla city and its inhabitants. By interviewing respondents from the host community, the paper addresses the above objectives. The findings are further analyzed in light of a theoretical framework. The complication of camp impacts on the host community has resulted in both positive and negative experiences. Socio-economic impacts have been positive such as new livelihood opportunities in the camp in addition to improvements in social services such as health and education. Negative impacts experiences by hosts have mostly been in term of their relationship with the IDPs populations which has resulted in more insecurity and conflicts in the hosting community.
