The international ‘refugee regime’ employs myriad actors to address
the needs of refugees worldwide. What prompts refugee outflows and how does
the international community address the needs of those fleeing persecution?
Coordination for refugee assistance occurs at various levels among UN agencies,
national departments and non-governmental organizations. Panelists will share
their experiences and offer insight into the factors affecting the practitioners
of refugee assistance in the global context.

This event is the second of a three-part series exploring the topic of refugees
and human security. In July, part one of the series dealt with the challenges
of refugee resettlement in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area. In September,
part three will address policy prescriptions relating to refugee resettlement
from both a United States policy perspective and an international policy perspective.
