UNHCR has published a new global review, this time on displaced youth. Here's part of the description:
"This review explores UNHCR’s engagement with displaced youth, refugees and IDPs, by analysing
the agency’s mandate in relation to youth through its policies, guidelines and strategies, institutional
infrastructure, approaches to identifying and responding to the needs of displaced youth, current
funding, programmes and monitoring and evaluation processes."
It concludes: "Displaced youth may well constitute a majority within the population of concern to UNHCR, but
because of the lack of clarity of concept, limited policy focus, little dedicated funding and limited
comprehensive youth programming, this segment of displaced populations has become largely invisible within UNHCR."
