UNHCR network links resettled refugees and allows them to advocate for important issues
The Worldwide Community of Resettled Refugees, created by UNHCR in collaboration with the University of Geneva, is a network which can be used by resettled refugees to advise those who are resettling; be a voice of the resettled refugee community; help advocate for important issues affecting resettled refugees, and serve as a member of a unique group that UNHCR will consult with on resettlement and other important issues. Any refugee or former refugee who has resettled in a third country is welcome to register to join this online community, regardless of when they were resettled.
More resources on witchcraft accusations and asylum
In our October issue, we published a piece citing several links to information on asylum for victims of witchcraft accusations. Another useful resource on this topic can be found on the Forced Migration Current Awareness Blog, a service highlighting web research and information relating to refugees, asylum-seekers, internally displaced persons (IDPs), and other forced migrants, provided by Elisa Mason.
