Migration, Displacement and the Age of the Humanitarian Crisis

According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Global Trends report, 65.3 million people, or one in every 113, across the world were forcibly displaced from their homes by conflict and persecution in 2015. This figure beats 2014's then record high of almost 60 million. This year's Sultan Nazrin Shah Lecture Series aims to address this humanitarian crisis. Organised by MERCY Malaysia since 2012, MERCY Malaysia's president Dato Dr Ahmad Faisal Mohd Perdaus joins me now to talk about the lecture and its theme - Migration, Displacement and the Age of the Humanitarian Crisis.
