#WorldRefugeeDay2021: UNHCR 2020 Global Trends report on forced displacement

MPG invites you to read the 2020 UNHCR Global Report, released on June 18th, World Refugee Day. The document details annual data on internally displaced people. UNHCR is a strong partner of MPG's, currently collaborating on a project which will lead to a step-by-step practical tool and communication materials for refugee integration stakeholders. This tool will then be used by relevant advocates and collaborators in designing and evaluating best practices for the integration of beneficiaries of international protection.
