The world's most neglected displacement crises in 2023

Published 03. Jun 2024|Updated 22. May 2024
As the world’s attention ebbs and flows around new crises and conflicts, an unsettling trend is emerging. Neglect of the protracted displacement crises featured in this report is becoming the new normal.

Displacement numbers are rising, and needs are spiralling out of control. Yet funding, media attention and political engagement remain inadequate.

Each year, the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) publishes a report of the ten most neglected displacement crises in the world. The purpose is to focus on the plight of people whose suffering rarely makes international headlines, who receive little or no assistance, and who never become the centre of attention for international diplomacy efforts.
