New Thematic Publications on Resettlement

The Annual Tripartite Consultations on Resettlement (ATCR) took place in Geneva from 1-3 July 2013. Held annually since 1995, “[t]he consultations have become an important vehicle for UNHCR’s cooperation with governments and NGOs and a mechanism to enhance partnership. They offer a forum to review progress on resettlement issues during the year, but more importantly, to re-focus and shape a joint strategy on resettlement.”  Here is the agenda.  Various operational guidance notes and assessment tools are also available.  This newsletter shares resettlement stories and notable developments; see also ICMC’s update.  Finally, here are UNHCR’s projected global resettlement needs for 2014.
