About the Author:

Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) (established December 14, 1950) protects and supports refugees at the request of a government or the United Nations and assists in their return or resettlement.

Review:

`The book ranges widely and provides a very readable and thought-provoking history of the last 50 years. It helps to see things in perspective' New World

`The book has an encyclopaedic scope, and it will be an important reference work for researchers and others interested in the evolution of modern refugee policy. Moreover, "The State of the World's Refugees 2000" is a relatively easy read, no small feat given the fact that there are 100 listed contributors, many of whom were from outside of the agency.' Arthur C. Helton, Senior Fellow for Refugee Studies and Preventive Action, Council on Foreign Relations New York, International Journal of Refugee Law, vol.13

`takes an indispensable first step toward helping the writing and thinking to catch up to the new realities fo refugee policy.' Arthur C. Helton, Senior Fellow for Refugee Studies and Preventive Action, Council on Foreign Relations New York, International Journal of Refugee Law, vol.13

`The book is also beautifully designed. It provides a well of graphs, diamgrams, maps, statistics and photographs' Millennium

`a well-researched analysis of the world's major displacement emergencies in the latter half of the twentieth century' Millennium

`an impressive and insightful work revealing how the international community's attempts at dealing with displacement crises have evolved during the last fifty years' Millennium

`The State of the World's Refugees 2000 is the most ambitious and impressive of the series so far' Millennium
