June 20 marks World Refugee Day, an occasion that draws attention to those who have been displaced around the globe. The UN reports that by the end of 2011 some 43.3 million people were displaced by conflict and persecution, and an estimated up to 12 million people were thought to be stateless.

In the run-up to June 20, Reuters photographers in various countries photographed someone who has at some point fled their home, from a Syrian family who escaped to Jordan, to a man who survived the Rwandan genocide and is now about to start his second Master’s degree in the United States.

Glasgow promotes new look, but deprivation festers

GLASGOW, Scotland, Feb 26 (Reuters) – Showy entertainment
venues, museums and new housing blocks have replaced many of
the shipyards that once lined Glasgow’s River Clyde.

Long gone are the days when the area was an industrial
powerhouse producing around a fifth of the world’s ships – now
Scotland’s largest city promotes itself instead as a financial
and commercial hub, soon to host the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
