Description: 
The existence of refugees as an international "problem has a longstanding tradition of recognition. Over recent years, concern has broadened to include not only those formally defined as "refugees" but also those " internally displaced " . Further, the creation of refugee producing situations has been framed within the post-colonial development process, particularly in Africa, and has been linked with the foreign policies of the world's major economic and ,military powers (Loescher, 1986). In a parallel manner, there is a comparably longstanding record of humanitarian assistance to refugees. The host populations, host governments, the UNHCR and local and international private, non-governmental organisations have provided assistance to refugees in settling in the host countries, in countries of asylum and in some cases in repatriation. The purpose of the present paper is to aid in the search for means to address the question: 'Where and How do we go from here?'
