Panel discussion on unaccompanied migrant children and adolescents and human rights
This report presents the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) discussion, of which the objective was to identify challenges and best practices by countries of origin, transit and destination, as well as possible joint efforts to protect the human rights of unaccompanied migrant children and adolescents.
Stocktaking of Global Forced Displacement Data
Sarzin reviews the availability, credibility, and methodologies behind common sources of displacement data, in doing so helping researchers and policymakers review their approaches to understanding an often difficult situation to encompass. Key definitions and ongoing programmes are also discussed to offer information for both those new to the topic and those to whom forced displacement is a familiar terrain.
UNHCR Resettlement Handbook
The handbook serves as a reference for NGOs and governments of resettlement countries on good practice and methodologies for effective resettlement of refugees. Besides defining key terms and outlining important legal frameworks such as the 1951 Geneva Convention, the handbook offers sections on the specific needs of refugees and, most important for data capacity builders, how to properly collect and store data on refugees and resettlement.
Measuring resettlement outcomes by looking at integration indicators
The report is the product of a 2009 working group on evaluating the integration of resettled refugees. Included is a draft survey on how to measure integration indicators such as employment rates, access to language services, access to affordable housing, and more. The survey draws from the UNHCR's goals for integration and concepts covered in the Integration Handbook.
