According to the United Nations (UN) High Commissioner for Refugees (2017), 65.6 million individuals around the world were forcibly displaced by the end of 2016. Of these, 22.5 million people were recognised as refugees under the Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees. A refugee, according to the Convention, is someone who is unable or unwilling to return to their country of origin owing to a wellfounded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group, or political opinion (UN High Commissioner for Refugees 2011).
