The United Nations yesterday, proposed that its member countries create and agree upon a system to share responsibility more fairly for the hundreds of millions of refugees and migrants around the world.

The global compact would be accompanied by a U.N.-led campaign to combat the xenophobia and racism that have tainted discussions of the refugees and migrants.

The U.N. estimates there are 20 million refugees worldwide and another 40 million people displaced inside their own countries.

Of the refugees, 86 percent live in developing countries, often near the countries they came from.
