Resettlement News


The 18th Annual Tripartite Consultations on Resettlement were held recently in Geneva.  As this Briefing Note indicates, 859,300 refugees around the world are in need of resettlement, but "there are just 81,000 resettlement places each year offered among some 26 States, meaning that in any year only one-in-10 persons needing resettlement will have an opportunity to be resettled."

*UNHCR's projected global resettlement needs for 2013 are available here.

The Refugee Council of Australia's report of the gathering is available here, beginning on p. 8.
