Global forced displacement has seen accelerated growth in 2014,
once again reaching unprecedented levels. The year saw the highest
displacement on record. By end-2014, 59.5 million individuals
were forcibly displaced worldwide as a result of persecution, conflict,
generalized violence, or human rights violations. This is 8.3 million
persons more than the year before (51.2 million) and the highest
annual increase in a single year.
