When one talks about IDPs in Sucre it is important to remember that most times the moving is not voluntary. In many cases in Sucre the time and type of displacement is closely linked to the economic capacity of the IDP. Also the option to go back home after the displacement is highly related to economic means. This is something that needs to have a greater part in the discussion regarding IDPs situation in Sucre. In addition, it is significant to let the IDPs talk about their situation in a qualitative study to shed some more light on how they view their situation. There is a change in how IDPs view themselves and their rights within the Colombian society. With the recognition of victims of the conflict the label IDPs has started to change into something desirable. (Less)
