Only 5% of the 60 million refugees and displaced people around the world find a permanent home each year. Once someone is forced to leave their home, they are 50 times more likely to be trafficked, sexually assaulted, or die than settle in a safe and sustainable place. Despite the ever increasing humanitarian efforts to address their needs, the status quo is no longer acceptable. We propose a bold and radical solution - for the 60 million stateless people around the world, a state of their own.
“People think that humanitarians can clean up the mess. It's no longer possible. We have no capacities to pick up the pieces.” Antonio Guterres, UN High Commission for Refugees
