REFUGEE RIGHTS

m Seeker bers d

Ethiopia

Ethiopia has recently overtaken Kenya as the host of the greatest number of refugees in Africa, primarily due to the ongoing conflict in South Sudan. According to the UNHCR the country currently accommodates 629,718 registered refugees, 247,000 of these from South Sudan. South Sudan

In addition its own population of internally displaced people, estimated to number 1.3 million people, South Sudan plays host to a refugee population of approximately 234,000, originating from countries throughout Africa including Sudan, the Central African Republic and Ethiopia.

Russia

An estimated 168,000 people have crossed from Ukraine to Russia so far in 2014; nearly 49,000 of these applying for temporary asylum and just over 6000 who applied for refugee status. The visa-free agreement between Ukraine and Russia allows many to cross without formally applying for protection, meaning that the number of those fleeing Ukraine is likely to be significantly higher.
