4 million people have left Venezuela
13 million people were newly displaced last year
Nearly 1 in 10 people globally is a refugee
More on the UN refugee report out this week
More people around the world are forcibly displaced now than at any point since the United Nations began keeping track, according to data released Wednesday by the UN refugee agency. The rise comes as millions flee ongoing crises in Syria and Venezuela and as governments in many developed countries that resettle refugees have limited how many people they’ll allow to cross their borders.
Almost 71 million people—nearly one in 100 people in the world—were forcibly displaced by the end of 2018 because of persecution, conflict, violence or human rights violations. That’s up from around 42 million in 2008. More than 13 million people were newly displaced last year.
