2023 marked the largest single-year increase in the number of people forcibly displaced worldwide with more than 110 million individuals forced to leave their homes due to persecution, conflict, or human rights violations. Violence has displaced people from Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Gaza, Iraq, Myanmar, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Ukraine, and beyond. Political turmoil and economic instability have forced millions to flee Venezuela and elsewhere. Climate change has been amplifying extreme weather disasters and exacerbating regional conflicts, and the combined effects are estimated to displace nearly 2.5 billion people by 2050.  

What do funders need to better understand about the global forces and systems that lead to forced displacement? How are groups responding to these global forces in a liberatory, intersectional, and transnational way? Frontline leaders and movements are, among other things, providing legal assistance and engaging in popular education. Join GCIR and these leaders as they discuss their responses to forced displacement.
