Unable to Make Peace…

For the seventh consecutive year, the global number of forcibly displaced persons has hit a post-World War II record.
The total figure, contained in the United Nations annual global trends report, includes refugees, asylum seekers and the internally displaced — that is, people forced from their homes who have not fled their countries. Refugees accounted for most of the ongoing increase.
The amount of people displaced by conflict reached 70.8 million last year, up from a little over 43 million a decade ago..
“We have become almost unable to make peace,” the UN high commissioner for refugees concluded.
