For this week’s link to another form of media I recommend the book UNHCR: The Politics and Practice of Refugee Protection by Alexander Betts, Gil Loescher , and James Milner. You can find this book on amazon at http://www.amazon.com/United-Nations-Commissioner-Refugees-UNHCR/dp/041578283X . This book covers the origins, the issues, and the future of refugee work within the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees), the United Nations subsection that serves refugees and internally displaced people. The book is a great read, though it does have some technical components and often requires referring to the list of abbreviations they provide in the front of the book.

If you read the book, please let me know what you think.

Your friend,
