As detailed in this Associated Press story that ran in the New York Times, Washington Post and Time magazine, among others, the World Refugee Council (a CIGI initiative) released a report calling for a major overhaul of the global refugee system, including reallocating up to $20 billion stolen by leaders of corrupt regimes to help the millions of people displaced around the world.

"The 218-page report it launched Thursday goes beyond what the United Nations has done, at a time when the number of people forcibly displaced from their homes is 68.5 million, the highest since World War II."
