War-torn Colombia needs to reintegrate world’s highest rate of displaced citizens

High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Colombia has the most internally displaced persons (IDP) in the world, with more than 6 million individuals — more than 13 percent of the national population — registered as of last year.
