At any given time, millions of people around the world are refugees, having been forced to flee their countries due to war, natural disaster, or persecution.

From its base in Minnesota, the American Refugee Committee provides humanitarian assistance and training for refugees in 11 countries.

At this year's Nobel Peace Prize Forum, ARC Director Daniel Wordsworth talked with MPR News' Tom Weber about the future of refugees and refugee camps.
