  • Solutions Strategy for Afghan Refugees 2018 - UNHCR

    The UNHCR has published a new report exploring methods and actions to support the implementation of a solutions strategy for Afghan refugees. After nearly four decades of protracted displacement, Afghan refugees still constitute just over 13 per cent of the global refugee population and one-fifth of the world’s protracted caseload, accounting for more than half of the 4.1 million refugees in protracted displacement of 20 years or longer. With almost 2.6 million registered refugees, Afghanistan remains the second largest country of origin in the world.This report looks into the roles of the three main actors influencing the lives of Afghan refugees - Iran, Pakistan and the government of Afghanistan - and looks to make recommendations for those actors to bring change to the current status quo.
