de Sherbinin, Michael J., Ed.; Weeg, Carol, Ed.
This report describes the current numbers and status of Asian, European, Soviet, Latin American, and African refugees worldwide and discusses the role of various governments and voluntary agencies in dealing with refugee problems. The need to strengthen the partnership between government and voluntary agencies in order to improve refugee conditions is stressed. Special reports on refugee problems and relief operations are presented for individual countries and regions, including detailed information on United States government refugee policy and sponsorship by U.S. based organizations. A directory of refugee service agencies, relief organizations and human rights groups, a selected bibliography on refugees, and addresses of local affiliates of the American Council for Nationalities Service are appended to the report.
