The state of the world's refugees, 2000 : fifty years of humanitarian action by Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees( Book )

17 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book describes the development of international refugee law and the establishment of institutions devoted to the protection of refugees and other displaced people. It traces the major crises in which UNHCR has been involved since its establishment 50 years ago. Beginning with the mass displacement in Europe after the Second World War, the book addresses the flight of refugees from Hungary in 1956, crises associated with the process of decolonization in Africa, the Bangladesh refugee emergency in 1971, the sustained exodus from Indochina which began in the 1970s, and the large outflows resulting from the protracted wars of the 1980s in Afghanistan, the Horn of Africa, and Central America." "Looking at the challenges of the 1990s, the book examines the population shifts in the former Soviet region, the Kurdish exodus from northern Iraq following the Gulf war, the increasingly restrictive asylum policies in Europe and North America, and the recent crises in the Balkans, the Great Lakes region of Africa, East Timor, and the Caucasus." "In this timely and important publication, UNHCR emphasizes the need to find lasting solutions to problems of forced displacement. Without human security, it argues, there can be no peace and stability."--Jacket

The state of the world's refugees, 1995 : in search of solutions by Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees( Book )

11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What can be done to resolve the global refugee problems? That is the question posed in this important report from the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. The book examines the origins of the current crisis and provides a comprehensive account of the way in which approaches to the problem of human displacement have changed since the end of the Cold War. While the right of asylum must be scrupulously maintained, the book argues, greater efforts must also be made to tackle refugee problems at their source, by restoring peace and prosperity to countries where large numbers of people have been forced to abandon their homes. And to achieve this objective, concerted international action will be required to protect human rights, establish effective peacekeeping operations, promote sustainable development and manage migratory movements

Refugee protection in international law : UNHCR's global consultations on international protection by Erika Feller( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and French and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Millions of people are today forced to flee their homes as a result of conflict, systematic discrimination, or other forms of persecution. The core instruments on which they must rely to secure international protection are the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and its 1967 Protocol. This book examines key challenges that the Convention faces, including the scope of the principle of non-refoulement and the proper application of the elements of the refugee definition. The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) commissioned papers on these issues from some of the world's pre-eminent international refugee lawyers, discussed at a series of expert roundtable meetings during 2001 as part of UNHCR's Global Consultations on International Protection. The papers and roundtable conclusions are published here, together with an introduction and the landmark declaration of the 2001 Ministerial Meeting of States Parties to the Convention and/or Protocol
The state of the world's refugees, 1993 : the challenge of protection by Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees( Book )

14 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By 1993, 18.2 million men, women, and children across the world had left their homelands to escape persecution and violence. An average of 10,000 refugees a day were forced to flee the year before, as new upheavals forced out new victims. At least another 24 million were displaced within their own countries. Yet despite these staggering numbers and the backlash they have provoked in overburdened countries of asylum, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees believes there is a solution to the international refugee crisis. This important and timely book illuminates current problems and their causes with informed analysis, detailed charts, graphs, and maps, and discussions of policy alternatives. It voices an urgent plea that doors be kept open for those in need of asylum. It is also an eloquent appeal for early intervention by the international community, whose peacemaking efforts could prevent further crises before they start, and could enable millions of refugees to return safely to their homes once again.

The state of the world's refugees, 1997-98 : a humanitarian agenda by Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees( Book )

9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The state of the world's refugees 2006 : human displacement in the new millennium by Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Recent years have seen a decline in the number of refugees, partly due to large-scale returns to Afghanistan and Angola, among others. Nonetheless, the majority of refugee situations remain protracted with no prospects for durable solutions in sight, such as the Bhutanese in Nepal, the Western Saharans in Algeria and the Somalis in various host countries. While the number of refugees has declined, the number of people displaced within the borders of their own country has dramatically risen, for example as is the case in Colombia and Sudan. At the same time, the provision of international protection to refugees has been undermined by responses to the ever more complex nexus between asylum and migration." "This book critically examines the changing dynamics of forced displacement and the challenges faced by affected states and the international community. More specifically, it analyses key developments in asylum policy and practice; it searches for practical solutions to protracted refugees situations; it re-examines the debates around durable solutions; and it assesses responses to internal displacement." "As well as analyzing policy issues related to refugees, returnees, asylum seekers, internally displaced persons and stateless populations, the book provides a wealth of statistical tables, graphs and maps."--Jacket
