Migration 101

New, fast-moving conflicts are precipitating an unprecedented global migration crisis.

There are currently more refugees, asylum seekers, and others fleeing conflict and violence around the world than ever before. The number of refugees in particular is at its highest since World War II. Migration 101 explains the scale of the global crisis, defines the different categories of people on the move and seeking safety, and details policy recommendations for the US government that will respect the rights of people fleeing violence and persecution.
