Abstract

Some 300,000 Nicaraguans—nearly 10 percent of the country's population—have been displaced by contra aggression. Many of them were evacuated from their rural homes and resettled in safer rural areas on an organized basis by the Nicaraguan government. Of the 250,000 displaced by the war up to 1985, some 79,000 were resettled to asentamientos. Fewer were resettled after 1985 when the tide of war turned in favor of Nicaragua.
