Refugees

Summary: two refugee conferences in New York. Pledges fall far short of need. MENA region more than half the world problem. Present global refugee regime not fit for purpose.

  1. There is a similar set of observations to Alexander Bett’s on the need for an alternative to the UNHCR in the FT this week:http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/4e10c2a0-7f1d-11e6-8e50-8ec15fb462f4.html. It’s clearly time for a change of mind-set toward refugees, still seen as temporary victims, towards seeing them as actors in the joint design of a much longer-term set of arrangements. This clearly includes access to work and a wider acceptance that their fate (viz the post-1948 Palestinians) will not be temporary if they are fleeing a failed state rather than persecution and/or war alone.
