It could be total refugees for the last 50 years, it doesn’t say. If it’s current. I find it difficult to believe that 1.2 million people sort asylum in Syria a country with civil war (more likely they were leaving). If it’s meant to be outgoing I find it difficult to believe 21,000 people became refugees escaping Australia. It makes no sense at all.

These Bhutanese refugees arrived in Nepal and were forced to setting into camps set up by the . As many as 100,000 Bhutanese refugees were in the camps by 1996. The governments of Nepal and Bhutan have been unable to come to any agreement as far as repatriation, leaving these Bhutanese refugees in a state of limbo. Beginning in 2008, the UN has made efforts to resettle these refugees in the West, and many of the Lhotshampa have immigrated to the , , and Canada.
