As the civil war in Syria enters its fifth year, an estimated 8 million citizens have been forced to flee their homes, becoming displaced internally or seeking refuge outside the country. Nearly 4 million refugees have settled in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt with little prospect of returning home on the horizon. We talk with a UNHCR representative just back from a month in Lebanon about the situation on the ground.

Guests

  • Brian Hansford Senior Communications Officer, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)
