Fact of the Day

As wars raged in 2014, an estimated 38 million people across the world were "forced to flee their homes by conflict and violence," setting a new record high for internal displacement, according to the Norwegian Refugee Council's Internal Displacement Monitoring Center (IDMC). On average, 30,000 each day fled their homes last year. These figures, however, strictly reflect internal displacement—those who stay within state borders—and do not include refugees forced to leave their countries.
