List of countries by refugee population

Under international law, a refugee is a person who has fled their own country of nationality or habitual residence, and cannot return due to fear of persecution on account of their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion, and is unable or unwilling to avail themselves of the protection of that country, or to return there, for fear of persecution. These recent migration movements are caused by a variety of reasons. Some of the refugees stay in refugee camps, some are urban refugees in individual accommodations, some stay in self-settled camps and for some refugees the location is undefined or unknown by UNHCR.
