Title Protracted Refugee Situations and Peacebuilding Publication Date 2007-01-27 Place of Publication Tokyo Publisher United Nations University Press Pages 7 Language eng Abstract Despite the need for a multifaceted approach to protracted refugee situ- ations, the overall response of policy makers remains compartmentalised. Security, development and humani- tarian issues tend to be discussed in different forums, each with their own institutional arrangements and inde- pendent policy approaches. Mean- ingful comprehensive solutions for protracted refugee situations must overcome these divisions and instead incorporate the recent policy initia- tives of a wide range of actors. This type of broader engagement—with a catalytic role by UNHCR—cannot occur without the sustained engage- ment of all branches of the UN sys- tem. In this way, the establishment of the UN Peacebuilding Commission provides both a timely opportunity and a possible institutional con- text for this type of cross-sectoral approach.
