Abstract

Over the past five years there have been two separate sets of meetings dealing with assistance to refugees in develop- ing countries. One was a series of meet- ings on Refugee Aid and Development convened by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), and the other set of meetings was the two International Conferences on as- sistance to Refugees in Africa (ICARAI and ICARA II) convened by the United Nations (UN). In 1984 these separate tracks of meetings have converged re- sulting in a new international consen- sus on principles for refugee assistance in developing countries. These new principles were necessitated by funda- mental changes in developing country refugee problems which meant that the traditional approaches to refugee assis- tance no longer seemed adequate to deal with the problems.
