Conflict Trends 2002/2


Focus on Refugees

"The challenges that we face, both individually and collectively, to make this twenty-first century an African century are immense... This special issue of Conflict Trends represents such a strategic partnership between the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the African Union, and ACCORD. We hope that in igniting a constructive debate it contributes in some small way to help alleviate the plight of refugees generally, and the African refugee in particular."
