Global Refugee Trends

At the end of 2013, there were more than 50 million displaced people globally, the highest number since WW2. I’m working on another post on how these experiences may impact biology and health, particularly for children. In the meantime, this UNHCR video shows some of the places that are most affected by forced displacement.

“Displacement is brutal. Many children stumble into exile barely alive after weeks in the bush.”


Faces of Displacement


“Fifteen countries now have internal displacement crises.”

“To change this, the world must pay attention. It must help now.”
