Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC)

Every year, the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) publishes a list of the ten most neglected displacement crises in the world. The main goal, is to focus on the plight of people whose suffering rarely makes international headlines. People whom politicians have forgotten or disregarded.
