Thank you much for sharing information like this. The refugee problem worldwide is staggering and it is unfortunately much too difficult to get information about refugees worldwide other then some brief news items. Other readers may enjoy Andy Lamey's "Frontier Justice: The Global Refugee Crisis and What to Do About It" (http://www.amazon.ca/dp/0385662548). The book provides much intelligent thought on refugee issues and offers solutions through thought out discourse... much like many of the articles you link to.

Thanks to Pietro and Elisa for their links to my book. I just thought I'd point out that the book is not yet published in the U.S., so the Canadian Amazon page is the more efficient place to get it.

For readers of this blog in Australia, there is an Australia edition with a new postscript discussing Australia's offshore processing debate. More info about the Australian edition is at:
