About the Author:

Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (U.N.H.C.R.) (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 is a goldmine of valuable information and a 'must-read' for all those involved in humanitarian assistance, educators, and students of forced migration, the media, and law'
Development in Practice

`the book provides useful commentary and insight on the nature and evolution of refugee operations over 50 years, a first-ever of its kind.'
Development in Practice, vol.11, no.5

`the text boxes, which are mini-archives, [are] especially informative'
Development in Practice, vol.11, no.5

`The team of researchers and writers, ably guided by editor Marc Cutts, has covered a vast amount of territory and pulled into relief the past and current events which have shaped global policy and practice.'
Development in Practice, vol.11, no.5

`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 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

`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
