June 20 is World Refugee Day. Sadly, the number of persons who are forcibly displaced from their homes and who seek refuge in another country continues to grow to record levels. The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) estimates the number of forcibly displaced persons to be almost 8o million - twice the number just a decade ago. New regional and international solutions are desperately needed for this growing crisis. For more information, go to the UNCHR website.
