Released in April 2006, The State of the World's Refugees annual report (issued by the United Nations Refugee Agency) contains a great deal of helpful information on the contemporary state of refugee populations and their movements. The report does contain a number of positive observations, including the fact that the current number of refugees is at a 25-year low. Unfortunately, there are a number of equally troubling observations and developments, including the fact that there are millions of internally displaced people and widespread confusion over migrants and refugees. The entire report can be viewed here, and visitors are most welcome to view individual sections at their leisure. All told, there are eight chapters, and they include those titled "Addressing refugee security" and "Safeguarding asylum." Buttressed by highly legible graphs and charts, this report is quite timely, and rather essential reading for anyone interested in this subject.
