Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Why are a record number of people being displaced? | Inside Story” – below is their description.

The UN’s refugee agency says more than 100 million people have been forcibly displaced around the world.

The record figure was reached after the war in Ukraine pushed at least 14 million people from their homes.

While the UNHCR praised the international response to help Ukrainians, it’s urging the same level of compassion for other conflicts and crises.

So will this be the ‘wake-up call’ to resolve other conflicts in Africa, Middle East and Asia?
