Course Correction

The UN estimates that there are 84 million forcibly displaced people around the world, and 27 million of those are considered refugees. These numbers are the highest they have ever been. For season 3 of Course Correction, we’re partnering with UNHCR, the United Nations refugee agency, to illuminate all aspects of the refugee experience. The season will follow refugees and other forcibly displaced persons from the moment they leave their homes to their eventual resettlement or return, detailing arduous journeys that can sometimes last years or even decades.


Course Correction is a production of Doha Debates and Qatar Foundation, with help from Foreign Policy.
