Colombian IDPs/Refugees in Ecuador

These two reports on refugees in Ecuador came to my attention around the same time:
  • In the Shoes of Refugees: Providing Protection and Solutions for Displaced Colombians in Ecuador, New Issues in Refugee Research, no. 217 (UNHCR, Aug. 2011) [text]
  • UNHCR and Refugee Rights Protection in Ecuador: The Effects of Non-State Institutional Innovation on Peacebuilding and Human Security, Paper prepared for the American Political Science Association Annual Meeting, Seattle, 1-4 September 2011 (posted Aug. 2011) [text via SSRN]

Since I have not posted much on the refugee situation in Ecuador, I thought I would take a look to see what else was available. First, here's a profile of the refugee groups in Ecuador and UNHCR's work there. Some other relevant titles I came across include:
