Part II. Displacements (Internal)
Answer the questions below based on the figure.
In Part I you were asked to provide specific information about a Figure. Now, look at Figure 7 (above) and write a paragraph that describes and explains the information in the chart. Try to include number estimates and possible reasons for the data.
Notably, several countries with large numbers of internal displacements – such as the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia and Somalia – are also either hosting or producing significant numbers of refugees and asylum seekers.
The complex and multicausal factors triggering displacement and inhibiting solutions have meant that host countries – some of the least developed in the world – continue to provide long-term refuge to a disproportionate share of the world’s displaced.
Reflect on the above excerpts from the World Migration Report 2020 Why so you think some of the countries that produce some of the highest numbers of refugees and asylum seekers are also the place of residence of some of the highest numbers of refugees and asylum seekers? What geographic, political, and/or economic factors produce this outcome?
