[India/Bangladesh] Study tour at UNHCR India Office (27th Aug 2012)

On 27th Aug 2012, the India and Bangladesh study tour group visited UNHCR New Delhi office in India, and had an unforgettable briefing by Ms. Nayana Bose, who is External Relations Officer. Firstly, she told us the outline of the UNHCR, and emphasized the importance of the “International Protection”. She also told us there are a lot of refugees from Afghanistan, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, and other countries in India. Next, Ms. Yamini Pande who is Associate Protection Officer described a connection between India government and UNHCR. UNHCR helps refugees get VISA, protects their rights, and so on. Finally, she explained that UNHCR promotes three solutions: “Voluntary Repatriation, Local Integration, and Resettlement”. It was the precious experience for us. (Misa Komine)
