A bridge between two worlds : leadership among resettled Sudanese youth in an American city /

by Gale, Lacey | United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

Publisher: Geneva, Switzerland United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees 2011Description: PDF.Other title: New issues in refugee research. Research paper ; no. 211.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2011 Bibliography pp. 22-26Summary: Humanitarian efforts are often focused on children in conflict, since the international legal definitions create a practical framework for addressing child-specific needs. Youth have different needs than children, however, and possess more potential to influence both the society around them and their home communities. Resettled youth face multiple transitions simultaneously, from conflict to third country resettlement and from child to adult. Their needs include not only the legal aspects of protection, but also the social and economic aspects, noted in UNHCR's Age, Gender and Diversity Mainstreaming strategy as the spheres in which most rights violations of persons of concern occur. The goal of this case study is to map resettled refugee youth participation and leadership in a particular context and to discuss how these findings apply to a broader humanitarian youth agenda. It became apparent over the course of this project that UNHCR is in the process of defining a discrete policy for youth. This case study identifies a cohort of young leaders in Maine who, along with their peers in the United States as well as other resettlement countries, have the potential to contribute to the formulation of UNHCR's policy on youth.Availability: (1)

by Field, Ophelia | United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees | Edwards, Alice.

Publisher: Geneva, Switzerland UNHCR 2006Description: PDF.Other title: Legal and protection policy research series; POLAS/2006/03.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: In 2002, UNHCR's Agenda for Protection urged "States more concertedly to explore alternative approaches to the detention of asylum seekers and refugees " in response to the increasing use of detention of asylum seekers and/or refugees by host governments. This study is a contribution towards that objective. This study undertook research into the practices regarding the use of alternatives to detention for asylum seekers and/or refugees of thirty-four States. The information presented herein is valid up to 31 March 2004 and takes no account of changes in law or practice between that date and the date of publication. This study has two main parts.

Second, and forming the main part of his study, it presents a range of alternatives to detention used by many receiving countries and attempts to evaluate those measures, specifically in relation to rates of absconding...Exec summaryAvailability: (1)

Back to basics : the right to liberty and security of person and 'alternatives to detention' of refugees, asylum-seekers, stateless persons and other migrants /

by Edwards, Alice | United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

Publisher: Geneva, Switzerland United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2011Summary: The widespread and growing use of immigration detention has come under considerable scrutiny in recent years on pragmatic (practical and functional) as well as human rights/legal grounds. This study articulates the current state of international law governing detention and its alternatives, and provides a critical overview of existing and possible alternatives to detention (A2Ds) options drawn from empirical research. Research visits were conducted to five countries, namely Australia, Belgium, Canada, Hong Kong, and the United Kingdom. This study contributes to the body of work of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) against the detention of refugees, asylum-seekers and stateless persons, and forms one of the background papers for the global roundtable on the same subject.Availability: (1)

Frontier justice : the global refugee crisis and what to do about it /

by Lamey, Andy.

Publisher: Brisbane, Qld. University of Queensland Press 2011Description: 406 p. : maps ; 23 cm.Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. [355]-394) and index.Summary: Frontier Justice is a gripping exploration of the world-wide refugee crisis. Andy Lamey presents the story behind the radical increase in the global number of asylum seekers, set within the historical and philosophical context in which the ideas of asylum originated and evolved. Importantly, Lamey approaches the issue as a global one, presenting case studies from Australia, North America, and Europe. He follows the extraordinary efforts of a set of Yale law students who sued the US government on behalf of a group of refugees imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay; he recounts one refugee family's harrowing journey from Saddam Hussein's Iraq to contemporary Australia via the world's most dangerous ocean crossing; and he explores the fascinating case of Ahmed Ressam, the so-called Millennium bomber who filed a refugee claim in Canada before attempting to blow up the Los Angeles airport. Throughout Lamey's account, he focuses on the rights of people in search of asylum, and how those rights are routinely violated. But Frontier Justice does not merely point out problems. At the heart of the book is a new blueprint for how the rights of refugees might be enforced, and a vision of human rights that is ultimately optimistic and deeply affirmative.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
