Chapter Summary

Human rights were at the heart of the situations that humanitarian actors had to deal with in the former Yugoslavia. This chapter presents UNHCR 's analysis of the situation, the place it accorded to human rights in its analysis, and how it thought human rights approaches could be used to help protect people at risk. The significance of UNHCR 's analysis is that it stands historically as an attempt to rally the international community to human rights ground and provided ideas that might be considered on a future occasion. In a note that the High Commissioner submitted to the meeting, they urged concerted and coherent action towards a comprehensive approach that would serve to (1) enhance respect for human rights and humanitarian law (2) strengthen efforts to prevent or contain displacement; and (3) provide refuge and material assistance for those in need of international protection.
