Words Matter

Do you know the difference between a migrant and an asylum-seeker? And how is a refugee different from either of those groups? 

Words (and their definitions) matter, especially if you are looking to understand the complex conversations around forced displacement. We recently updated a few of the resources in our toolbox, including one that clarifies the meaning behind commonly used terms.
