Most displaced in history
Worldwide, 59.5 million people are on the move as refugees or displaced people within their home countries.
That population would be enough to make them citizens of the world’s 24th biggest country!
Humanity has never seen such displacement. Ever.
“Wars, conflict and persecution have forced more people than at any other time since records began to flee their homes and seek refuge and safety elsewhere,” the United Nations said in June.
At least 15 wars and conflicts are to blame — in Africa, the Mideast and Asia.
