Monitoring has consisted of two parts: (1) monitoring of publications about IDPs in mass media; (2) monitoring of the attitude of host communities to IDPs. Media was studied as a means for formation of public opinion and as its indicator. Quantity and general context of publications about IDPs in regional and central media have been analyzed.
Within relations between local population and displaced persons neutral and/or positive attitudes to IDPs prevail. Nevertheless, there are a number of stereotypes in the area of housing/apartment renting and employment that complicate IDPs adaptation.
