Description
The Turbulent Decade: Confronting the Refugee Crises of the 1990s

From Iraq to Afghanistan, and from the Balkans to the Great Lakes Region of Africa, the 1990s were years of forced migration. Displaced by conflict, millions of people became refugees. All would need international protection and assistance.

That story is told in a recently published book called "The Turbulent Decade: Confronting the Refugee Crises of the 1990s". Its author -- the guest on this edition of World Chronicle - is Sadako Ogata, who headed the UN High Commissioner for Refugees from 1991 to 2000.
