There were now more than 60 million refugees, asylum-seekers and internally displaced persons in the world. Fifteen new conflicts have broken out or flared up again in the last five years without any of the old ones getting resolved.

The world’s 65 million refugees deserve praise for their resilience and courage and those who receive them should be recognized for welcoming them into their communities, UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi said on Tuesday. In a statement marking World Refugee Day, Grandi said the uncertainties of today’s world could make people want to shut their eyes to the plight of those displaced by war, persecution and violence. However, he added that fear and exclusion would only lead to “barriers, alienation and despair”. This week, UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, issued its annual Global Trends report which showed the number of people displaced worldwide had risen to 65.6 million by the end of 2016, its highest level ever. “On June 20, World Refugee Day, we honour the resilience and courage of more than 65 million people who have been forced to flee war, persecution and violence,” Grandi said. “But it’s also a moment to recognise those communities and people around the world who receive refugees and the internally displaced in their midst, offering them a safe place, and welcoming them in their schools, their workplaces and their societies.” Through its work, UNHCR has witnessed the “courage, tenacity and brilliance of refugees,” he added. “Having lost their homes, their work, and sometimes their families, they don’t give up, they find a way to start again.” Inclusion required a “whole of society approach,” he said, linking “students, business leaders, athletes, activists, religious leaders, politicians and artists to share responsibility”. Grandi said there were outstanding examples in villages, towns and cities in countries on every continent where refugees had been welcomed. “In big and small ways, communities around the world are standing together #WithRefugees, recognising that when people work together, everyone wins.” World Refugee Day provides “a moment to ask ourselves what each of us can do to overcome indifference or fear and embrace the idea of inclusion”, he said, concluding: “Because, when we stand together #WithRefugees, we also stand for respect and diversity for all.” http://www.unhcr.org/news/latest/2017/6/5948cf834/refugees-deserve-praise-resilience-courage.html Information for media: If you would like to use this video to communicate refugee stories or require B-Roll, transcripts, stills or much more information, please contact hqvideo@unhcr.org. --- Keep up to date with our latest videos: https://www.youtube.com/user/unhcr?sub_confirmation=1 -- UNHCR, the UN refugee agency, works to protect and assist those fleeing war and persecution.

GET THIS WEEK'S SHIRT: http://represent.com/tyler Being LGBTQ+ in the United States can definitely be difficult, but in some countries around the world you can go to jail or even be killed if you are out of the closet. I met two resilient members of our community, Shadi (from Syria) and Sharifa (from Uganda) who went to incredible lengths to flee their home countries to avoid persecution. Stories like these bring humanity to the refugee crisis that has been surrounded by xenophobia in our country - and prove that we have to stick together for all members of our (even international) Chosen Family.

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) invited seven YouTube creators to get to know refugees around the world. See more stories at youtube.com/youtube Learn more about the IRC and YouTube’s partnership at https://www.Rescue.org/YouTube Never before has the world witnessed such a dramatic scale of human suffering. In fact, more people have been forced to flee their homes by conflict and crisis today than at any time since World War II. Last year, the number of people displaced by conflict worldwide surpassed 65 million. In Syria alone, six years of war have driven 13.5 million people from their homes. Millions more have been uprooted in Afghanistan, Nigeria, Yemen and elsewhere. If displaced people could form a country, it would be the 21st largest in the world, with a population greater than Great Britain’s.Only 1% of the world’s refugees are resettled to a third country. More about IRC: The International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises. Founded in 1933 at the call of Albert Einstein, the IRC is at work in over 40 countries and 28 offices across the U.S. helping people to survive and regain control of their future.

What would David Cameron, the former British Prime Minister, look like if he were homeless? How would you react if you saw Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader, walking with no shoes? The Vulnerability Series is an exhibition by Syrian artist Abdullah Al-Omari at his recent exhibition in the United Arab Emirates. He gives world leaders a makeover with a difference. He takes them out of their fine suits and paints them as refugees.
