Current facts and figures of refugees and displaced people worldwide

We are now witnessing the highest levels of displacement on record.

An unprecedented 65.3 million people around the world have been forced from home. Among them are nearly 21.3 million refugees, over half of whom are under the age of 18.

There are also 10 million stateless peoplewho have been denied a nationality and access to basic rights such as education, healthcare, employment and freedom of movement.

In a world where nearly 34,000 people are forcibly displaced every day as a result of conflict or persecution, our work at UNHCR is more important than ever before.
