Global Report

Released in parallel, UNHCR's Global Report reflects the agency's work on behalf of those within its mandate, including most people forced to flee and the world's stateless populations.

Both flagship publications – Global Trends and Global Report – are accessible through this shared landing page: https://www.unhcr.org/flagship-reports/
