Countries Hosting Most Refugees: A Deep Dive into Refugee Numbers and Trends

Most Refugees Are Hosted By These Countries

As per the figures from the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), it is estimated that about 36.5 million individuals were classified as refugees under the mandates of UNHCR or UNRWA by mid-2023. The chart provided by Anna Fleck of Statista reveals that the majority of countries hosting refugees are those neighboring nations that are currently dealing with conflict or war.

A significant increase in the number of refugees was observed in Iran, with the numbers rising from 798,343 in 2021 to 3,425,091 in 2022. This surge is largely attributed to the increasing number of people fleeing Afghanistan. The humanitarian agency, Concern Worldwide, also suggests that this rise could be due to changes in Iran's refugee classification system and efforts to legitimize refugees who were previously undocumented. Turkey, another example, hosts around 3.3 million refugees from Syria out of its total refugee population of 3.4 million. According to the data from UNHCR from mid-2023, the countries that have the highest number of forcibly displaced individuals are Syria (6.5 million), Afghanistan (6.1 million), Ukraine (5.9 million), and South Sudan (2.2 million). It is crucial to highlight that the actual numbers might be even higher as the data only represents individuals who have been identified by the UN as forcibly displaced.
