Why Are There Still Refugee Camps?

August 12, 2013

I’ve got an essay on UNHCR’s urban refugee policy, on the new Urban Refugees blog. Four years after UNHCR announced its new policy on urban refugees, there have been some new critiques raising doubts about whether UNHCR is really committed to changing its approach. UNHCR has also published its own review of the implementation of the new policy. There are some valid grounds for skepticism, but I remain very enthusiastic about what UNHCR is trying to do. My essay is intended as a critique of the critiques.

Check it out.
