U.N. Refugee Agency Launches “The State of the World’s Refugees”
PDF File Size: 38 KB | Download   
The return of millions of people to recovering nations such as Afghanistan, Angola and Sierra Leone has contributed to a sharp global decline in the number of refugees and asylum seekers over the past five years, but the sustainability of some of those returns remains a concern, according to a new report today by the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees. “The State of the World’s Refugees: Human Displacement in the New Millennium,” (Oxford University Press) was launched in London by High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres and U.K. Secretary of State for International Development Hilary
Benn. The book examines the changing dynamics of displacement over the past half decade. While the number of refugees – 9.2 million – is now the lowest in 25 years, it says the international system for dealing with human displacement has reached a critical juncture as it struggles with new challenges in an increasingly globalized world. These include the plight of tens of millions of internally displaced people; widespread confusion over migrants and refugees; tightened asylum policies and growing intolerance. In his foreword to the book, Guterres notes that inter-state conflict is less prevalent today than internal strife and civil war, resulting in fewer refugees crossing international
borders and more displaced within their own countries. Although the world’s estimated 25 million internally displaced people do not fall under the 1951 Refugee Convention, they are nevertheless in urgent need of help.
