A Problem With Few Solutions

A Problem With Few Solutions

June 20th is World Refugee Day. According to a new report by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), almost 60 million people were forcibly displaced across the world by conflicts in 2014, the highest ever recorded by the UN refugee agency. One in every 122 person is now either a refugee, internally displaced, or seeking asylum, and half of all refugees are children. UNHCR's representative in Malaysia, Richard Towle, is on the show to give us an update on the state of refugees in this country.
