More than half of the world’s 25.9 million refugees are children. Some die during their journey to find safety, while others remain in makeshift refugee camps for several years. Global conflict continues to swell the number of refugees, but domestic disagreements stymie response. This book describes realistic accounts of refugees’ circumstances and summarizes current policy debates and experts’ suggestions about how to alleviate the global refugee crisis.
