A really, really bad month for refugees
James Hathaway

Thank you for this commentary. It made me want to find out more about what is at stake over the next two years as we wait for another summit, which in turn led me to a recent article by Somali journalist and former refugee Moulid Hujale. He comments, “…today we have an average of 24 people being displaced every single minute. If the current trend continues, this means that by the time world leaders meet again in 2018, another 25 million people will have been displaced globally, not to mention the thousands more who may perish trying to find safety.” https://www.irinnews.org/opinion/2016/09/14/let%E2%80%99s-not-wait-another-two-years-act-refugee-crisis Our collective failure to act in the face of this calamity is truly hard to understand. What will it take to create the will to find solutions?
