RSC resource: a tool for adoption of UNHCR voluntary pledges
- 14 September 2011
- Research impacts
To commemorate its 60th Anniversary, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is facilitating a ministerial-level meeting on 7 and 8 December 2011 to review protection gaps and measures to address them
States are being encouraged to make voluntary pledges at this meeting. The pledging process will serve as an opportunity for States to identify issues and challenges of importance to them and promote realistic ways to respond.
The Refugee Studies Centre, as a leading centre for multidisciplinary, independent and critical scholarship on the causes and consequences of the forced displacement of populations, is supporting this process by highlighting a number of the RSC’s resources which are relevant to the proposed pledges and which, we hope, will help States in their thinking about the issues at stake.
These resources are organised along the themes of addressing statelessness, preventing discrimination, resolving protracted refugee situations and improving humanitarian response and contain highlights of the most relevant:
- RSC research reports
- Forced Migration Review issues
- Working Papers
- Policy Briefings
- and more...
