Brief narrative A conflict between the Nigerien government and Tuareg groups intensified in 2007 following the creation of the Mouvement Nigérien pour la Justice. The clashes have resulted in some 11,000 people being displaced from their homes in mountainous areas north of Agadez. The conflict has abated in 2009, and many of the IDPs have begun to return to their homes, either spontaneously or with assistance from the local municipalities and the international community. Under conditions limited humanitarian access and the ongoing state of emergency in the whole region, reliable information on the iDP situation also is difficult to come by.
