Thematic Focus: Resettlement

The Annual Tripartite Consultations on Resettlement were held 24-26 June 2014 in Geneva.  The objective of these meetings is "to address a wide range of policy and procedural matters, including advocacy, capacity building and operational support" and to formulate joint strategies on resettlement.  The European Resettlement Network has circulated a summary of the discussions on its web site, along with the agenda and other documents.  A comprehensive report on the 2014 ATCR (including the text of the NGO statement) is available from the Refugee Council of Australia, while thoughts on the meeting from the Canadian perspective have been posted on the blog of the Ottawa Office of the Mennonite Central Committee.

For another overview of resettlement, see the Progress Report on Resettlement (along with presentation notes) that was submitted to the most recent Standing Committee meeting.  It reviews UNHCR's resettlement activities and identifies current challenges and how to address them.
