To commemorate its 60th Anniversary, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is facilitating a ministerial-level meeting on 7 and 8 December 2011 to review protection gaps and measures to address them. States are being encouraged to make voluntary pledges at this meeting. The pledging process will serve as an opportunity for States to identify issues and challenges of importance to them and promote realistic ways to respond.
The Refugee Studies Centre, as a leading centre for multidisciplinary, independent and critical scholarship on the causes and consequences of the forced displacement of populations, is supporting this process by highlighting a number of the RSCs resources which are relevant to the proposed pledges and which, we hope, will help States in their thinking about the issues at stake.
These key resources are listed on the website, organised thematically under the pledge themes.
