Developing countries shoulder a disproportionate amount of responsibility for hosting refugees, according to the UNHCR refugee agency, with the poorest nations hosting 6.7 million individuals, a third of all refugees worldwide. These countries have the least resources to respond to people seeking refuge, when they are already facing structural barriers to development. On World Refugee Day, a look at which countries take in the most refugees:
