just talk war refugees

The current refugee crisis is unparalleled in history in its size and severity. According to the UNHCR, there are roughly 70 million refugees worldwide, the vast majority of whom are refugees as the result of wars and other military actions. This social and political crisis—1 in every 120 humans is a refugee—cries out for a response. Morally and politically, how should we understand this crisis? What, if anything, do we owe war refugees, and why?
