MercatorNet ► How can we settle 65 million refugees? || MercatorNet

Although there are 65 million refugees scattered across the globe, I have only met a couple of them, both from Sudan. According to the migration expert from the University of Virginia interviewed below, my experience must be pretty typical. I live a comfortable life in a stable, wealthy country and have no idea of the suffering endured by refugees in countries like Colombia, the Democratic Republic of Congo or Pakistan.
Most news stories about refugees focus on violent conflict, such as the situation in Syria. But when there is no grand geopolitical clash, millions of people are ignored by Western media. My two friends both had the same experience of dreary year upon dreary year in a dusty camp in northern Kenya, where nothing ever happened. Is there a solution? Christine Mahoney believes there is. Read her recommendations below.
