Annual Reports: Development, Human Security, Humanitarian Response, Migration


Human Security Report Project (HSRP) released the Human Security Report 2009/2010 on 2 December 2010. Organized in three parts, the report covers "the causes of peace," "the shrinking costs of war," and "trends in human insecurity."

IOM's World Migration Report 2010 was launched on 30 November 2010. The theme of the report is "The Future of Migration: Building Capacities for Change." Part A covers capacity-building while Part B looks at trends in international migration. In addition, the many background papers prepared for the report can be accessed via IOM's publication pages. Moreover, in this edition, IOM included a number of Eurasylum's interviews with international migration experts.

Speaking of which, Eurasylum's most recent interview (not included in the World Migration Report) was with the High Commissioner for Refugees, António Guterres.

Looking ahead, work and thinking on the World Bank's World Development Report for 2011 are well under way. The main goal will be to "contribute concrete, practical suggestions to the debate on how to address and overcome violent conflict and fragility." Various resources are already available for browsing on the WDR2011 site.

Finally, the Humanitarian Response Index for 2010 will be launched tomorrow, 7 December 2010. It apparently highlights the increasing "politicization of humanitarian aid." A link to the text will eventually be posted on this blog accordingly.
