Unit 2: Population and Migration

 

This article features an interactive map that displays the numbers of IDPs (internally displaced persons) made by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. You are able to look through the years and see the varying amounts of IDPs, as well as the countries that produced the most of them and which continue to.

It talks about the different types of migration such as asylum seakers and illegal immigration. It mentions the disadvantages and advantages of migration.
