النازحون في جميع أنحاء العالم نحو 71 مليون شخص

June 19, 2019 -- A record 71 million people have been displaced worldwide by war, persecution and other violence, the UN refugee agency said Wednesday, an increase of more than two million from last year.

The annual “Global Trends” report released by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees counts the number of the world’s refugees, asylum-seekers and internally displaced people at the end of 2018.

The report, released on the eve of World Refugee Day on Thursday, said that 70.8 million people were forcibly displaced at the end of last year, up from about 68.5 million in 2017 – and nearly a 65 percent increase from a decade ago. Among them, nearly three in five people – or more than 41 million – are displaced within their home countries.

UNHCR said that its figures are “conservative” as they do not reflect those who have fled Venezuela.

Some 4 million people are known to have left the South American country in recent years, but only half a million have formally applied for asylum, the report said.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
