The UN estimates that there are 84 million forcibly displaced people around the world, and nearly 27 million of those are considered refugees. These numbers are the highest they have ever been. For season three of Course Correction, Doha Debates is partnering with UNHCR, the United Nations refugee agency, to illuminate all aspects of the refugee experience.

Over the course of six episodes, host Nelufar Hedayat will speak with refugees and other forcibly displaced persons and hear their stories—from the moment they leave their homes to their eventual resettlement or return, detailing arduous journeys that can sometimes last years or even decades. We’ll examine the challenges that stateless people face, the work being done to assist them, and the ways in which the global community can provide further support and solutions.
