UK aid for refugee host countries


The International Development Committee is holding an inquiry into UK support for countries which host large numbers of refugees. The focus will be on the case studies of Jordan and Lebanon, both of which have hosted large numbers of Palestinian refugees since 1948 and refugees from Syria for more than a decade.

The number of people forced to flee conflict, violence, human rights violations and persecution has now crossed a milestone of 100 million for the first time on record, propelled by the war in Ukraine and other deadly conflicts, according to the UN refugee agency, UNHCR.
