Le HCR au Mexique auprès des Guatémaltèques : 20 ans de présence
Keywords:UNHCR, Mexico, Guatamalan refugees, intervention, Geneva Convention
AbstractAs the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), prepares to celebrate twenty years of its presence in Mexico, this paper examines its work there, with special focus on the programs for Guatemalan refugees. Despite restrictions linked to the manner of its initial entry in Mexico as well as to the position adopted by the authorities towards refugees and the Geneva Convention, the UNHCR’s activities were made easy because of its role as a source of financing. Consequently, we are able to mention some activities of the UNHCR in favour of Guatemalan refugees where its direct and/or indirect intervention proved crucial.
