transit

posted in: oslo | 0

the nobel peace center is currently showing an exhibit called transit, a photo display of refugees in different countries. the most interesting facts presented in the exhibit were the numbers of refugees in various countries (in 2010):

  • Refugees from Columbia: 454 088
  • Refugees in Columbia from other countries: 300
  • Refugees from Afghanistan: 2 917 535
  • Refugees in Afghanistan from other countries: 49
  • Refugees from Syria: 23 484
  • Refugees in Syria from other countries: 1 529 655
  • Refugees from Bangladesh 12 258
  • Refugees in Bangladesh from other countries: 228 586
  • Refugees from Yemen: 2 554
  • Refugees in Yemen from other countries: 172 220
  • Refugees from Norway: 10
  • Refugees in Norway from other countries: 54 465

Gotta wonder who the refugees from Norway are–and who would flee to Afghanistan…
