Visualising the global flow of 35 million refugees by Al Jazeera Digital

By the end of 2022, the number of refugees globally stood at 35.3 million, an increase of more than eight million from the year before, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

To raise awareness about the situation of refugees worldwide, on World Refugee Day Al Jazeera published a data visualisation story which visualised 70 years of refugee journeys.

To tell the stories of where refugees come from and where they settle we produced a collection of annotated steam graphs, chord diagrams as well as maps and powerful personal accounts from refugees around the world.
