59.5 million. This is the number of people who found themselves displaced from their country of origin in 2014 because of persecution, conflicts, widespread violence and human rights violations. That number is 8.3 million more people than in 2013. In this Paper, we look at the reasons behind such a worrying increase and we propose solutions in order to respond to a situation which is already out of control.
