Celebrating 50 Years of UNHCR.
Guest Editor:Elisabeth Rehn

The Centre for Refugee Studies invites contributions for an upcoming issue of Refuge dedicated to celebrating the 50th anniversary of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

The UNHCR, since its creation in 1951, has protected and assisted countless persons in displacement, either within or outside their home countries. As we approach the 50th anniversary of the organization, this issue of Refuge will review the evolution of the organization, the limitations of mandate and structure, and successes achieved.

Papers may address topics including, but not limited to the role of UNHCR in situations of on-going conflict; the role of UNHCR in assisting internally displaced persons; the evolution of UNHCR from 1951 to the present; the engendering of UNHCR policy and practice; the impact of donor politics on UNHCR practice; regional/country-specific examinations of the work the organization; the role of UNHCR in the return of displaced populations; the role of UNHCR policy in the evolution of international refugee law; as well as prospects and challenges for UNHCR in the coming decade and beyond.

Papers should be typed, double-spaced and referenced in proper academic form. They should not exceed 24 pages or about 6000 words. Shorter papers, book reviews and case comments are also welcome. A brief abstract (100-150 words) and a two sentence institutional identification of the author must be provided. All submissions should be word processed and sent on disk or by email attachment. On accepte aussi des articles en francais. Le style doit conformer aux normes exiges pour les articles rediges en anglais.
