How old is the average refugee? Which countries are impacted by them, and how? Can taking in refugees actually help an economy? These are all questions that help to humanize and educate the world about the ongoing refugee crisis. And, in this case, it’s true that understanding the nature of refugee migration is the first step towards ending it.
