I. International Administration


  • Kathleen Newland
  • Galina Vitkovskaia




The authors were asked to consider the best means for international administration of the proposed reformed system of international refugee protection. They suggest that the UNHCR, in its present form, would not be able to administer the proposed system. They explore the possible shape of a successor organization, perhaps a revamped UNHCR, with secured levels of funding, a greater vesting of authority in regional bodies and an enhanced role for non-state actors, which would actively engage in refugee determination and allocation of responsibility for temporary protection among states. This is a substantially abbreviated version of the authors' original work. Please refer to the notice at the end of this section if you are interested in obtaining a full copy of the paper, which is expected to be published in mid-1996.
