Refugee Fatigue? | Bigger Than Five

"The number of forcibly displaced people worldwide increased by more than 2 million in 2018 reaching a record 70.8 million, according to the UNHCR. The world took notice of the plight of refugees after Syrians began streaming into Europe in 2015. But while refugees are no longer appearing in the headlines, their plight endures. Are the global powers taking notice? What can they do to lessen the load on developing nations?

Secretary of State, Population Refugees & Migration (2007-2009) and former State Department deputy Legal Advisor #Refugees #Developing Nations #UNHCR #RefugeeWeek #Conflict #War #Persecution #Syria #Rohingya #Central America #Immigration #Myanmar #Iraq #Afghanistan
