Six Richest Countries Host Less Than 9% of Refugees

Oxfam International

WASHINGTON - The six wealthiest countries - which make up more than half the global economy - host less than nine percent of the world’s refugees while poorer countries and territories are shouldering most of the responsibility, Oxfam said today. Jordan, Turkey, Pakistan, Lebanon, South Africa as well as the Occupied Palestinian Territory host over 50 percent of the world’s refugees and asylum seekers but account for under 2 percent of the world’s economy.
