Chapter Summary

This chapter outlines the nature of the problem from UNHCR's perspective and describes some of the measures and initiatives to alleviate the problem. It focuses on refugees, as they are of most immediate concern to UNHCR. UNHCR's mandate in providing international protection to refugees, and assisting States in identifying and delivering solutions to refugees' problems clearly brings us into the realm and the international agenda of the protection for civilians in armed conflict. The UNHCR has promoted and applied a number of actions and activities in partnership with States, members of the donor community, other international agencies. UNHCR continues to assist States in enhancing national law enforcement capacities with the aim of strengthening refugee camp security mechanisms. UNHCR will continue to work to ensure that the 'doubly threatened', the refugees, are more effectively protected and will continue to do whatever it can for the IDPs whenever it is asked to do so.
