Respect our Rights, Partnership for Equality: Report on the Dialogue with Refugee Women


Throughout early 2001, UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, responded to the call by refugee women to broaden this partnership and include their voices. An important part of that response was the consultations that were held with 500 refugee and displaced women, NGO and government partners around the world. The women spoke of the tragedies they have suffered, the difficulties of surviving in exile, the hopes they still carry and the courage and skills that have sustained them. These insights gave life to the discussions at the June 2001 Dialogue held in Geneva.
