Forcibly Displaced: Toward A Development Approach Supporting Refugees, the Internally Displaced, and Their Hosts
September 15, 2016Washington, D.C.

Recent events have drawn the world's attention to a crisis that has been building up for a long time: forced displacement. The World Bank Group's new report, Forcibly Displaced, is a groundbreaking study which analyzes data to understand the scope of the challenge and articulates a development approach to resolving the crisis -- to help the displaced and their hosts rebuild their lives. The report was produced in close partnership with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
