The bitter civil war in Sri Lanka created thousands of refugees. The United Nations refugee policy played an important role in protecting some of Sri Lanka's citizens. Written by the former head of the agency, this book provides an unrivalled account of what went on during the war in the early 1990s and what could and should have been done by the United Nations to protect Sri Lanka's refugees. Providing a broad account of Sri Lanka's history and the roots of the conflict, the book explores the evolution of U.N. protective practices. The author's unique experience provides a crucial insight not only into the conflict in Sri Lanka but also into U.N. practice regarding refugees and internally displaced persons more generally. It is ideal for anyone involved in humanitarian work and for students of conflict resolution.
