WELCOME: RACISM and DISPLACEMENT

Dear Colleagues:

Welcome to the CRN 11 May 2020 Newsletter: volume 2, Issue 5.

Systemic and Institutional racism, a chronic disease, entered a new era. Anti-racism solidarity protests, sparked by the murder of George Floyd, an unarmed Black man who was pinned to the ground by a White police office kneeling on his neck, are sweeping across the world in defiance of a new surge in COVID-19 cases. In the United States alone, a total of two million cases and 115,644 deaths are reported; a quarter and half of all global cases and deaths confirmed, respectfully.

But the chronicity of structural racism across the world is not confined to police brutality, the criminal injustice system, or elite academic institutions, but alive and well in in literally every segment of society where there is racial diversity. Thus, the internally displaced peoples, especially those from the Global South, who “happen” to be Black and Brown peoples, are no exception.

Undisputedly, racism was the main cause of forced displacement during WWII, prompting the drafting of the 1951 Refugee Convention. Host countries’ relentless efforts to close their borders from displaced persons, migrants, refugees, and other immigrants, particularly those from war-torn countries in the Global South, are sustained by racism, xenophobia, and nationalism. Even after acceptance into a host country as a bona fide immigrant, displaced persons still face unending challenges of austerity measures, restrictive policies, detention, ill-treatment, violent attacks, and socio-economic discrimination. These challenges predispose displaced peoples to all forms of human rights abuses, including denial of protection and care for their basic needs.

DISPLACED PEOPLES’ RIGHTS AND PROTECTION

Global Protection Cluster marks the 20th anniversary of the Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement (GP20), with a multi-stakeholder 3-year plan: Plan of Action for Advancing Prevention, Protection and Solutions for Internally Displaced People (IDPs) 2018–2020. This Plan of Action centres around four priority issues identified at a 2017 IDP stakeholder meeting convened by the UN Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of IDPs: participation of IDPs; national laws and policies addressing internal displacement; data and analysis on internal displacement; and addressing protracted displacement and facilitating durable solutions. More information is available here.

The United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) adopted Resolution 74/131 on 18 December 2019 during the seventy-fourth session of the General Assembly. Recalling the Organization of African Unity Convention governing the specific aspects of refugee problems in Africa of 1969 and the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights, Resolution 74/131 “calls upon African States that have not yet signed or ratified the African Union Convention for the Protection and Assistance of Internally Displaced Persons in Africa to consider doing so as early as possible in order to ensure its wider implementation …”. More information is available here.

On 21 May 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR)signed a new agreement to strengthen and advance public health services for the millions of forcibly displaced people around the world. The agreement updates and expands an existing 1997 agreement between the two organizations. More information is available here.

Spokesperson for the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCHR), Rupert Colville, gave a press briefing on Yemen on 12 June 2020: He says, “We are alarmed at the desperate situation in Yemen, where the healthcare system is on the brink of collapse, and are fearful that countless lives will be lost not only to COVID-19 but as a result of malaria, cholera, dengue fever and other diseases. We urge international donors to provide immediate relief to help the millions who have already endured five years of warfare.” More information is available here.

A United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) report found that COVID-19 measures will likely to lead to an increase in migrant smuggling and human trafficking in longer term. According to the report, COVID-19 travel and movement restrictions are not stopping the movement of people fleeing conflict, human rights abuses, violence and dangerous living conditions, while the economic consequences of the pandemic are likely to lead to an increase in smuggling of migrants and trafficking in person flows from the most affected countries to more affluent destinations. More information is available here.

On 4 June, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) delivered the first round of cash assistance to vulnerable migrants in Iraq who have lost their incomes due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on the minimum expenditure basket, each individual received USD 182 to enable them to meet essential needs such as food, rent, and utilities. The recipients — Bangladeshi and Filipino nationals — were referred to IOM Iraq by their respective embassies. More information is available here.

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) denounces the attack that killed 16 people, including five girls under the age of 15, on 3 June in Ituri Province in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this attack on innocent children,” said Edouard Beigbeder, UNICEF Representative in the DRC. “We call on all parties to respect the rights of women and children.” According to UN-verified reports, the attack took place in Moussa, a village in the Djugu area, north of the Ituri capital Bunia. More information is available here.

Statement by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Executive Director Henrietta Fore on the Killing of Health Workers in Somalia. “I am appalled by the abduction and execution of seven health workers at a health center in southern Somalia.”Targeting health care workers is an egregious violation of international law and can constitute a war crime. These heinous attacks interfere with fundamental protections of the right to health and the perpetrators must be held accountable.” More information is available here.

Call for Papers: Improving Attention to Internal Displacement Globally

In February 2020, a new High-Level Panel on Internal Displacement appointed by the UN Secretary-General began work, preparing concrete and practical recommendations on improving the response to internal displacement, with particular attention to achieving solutions. It gives added momentum to existing initiatives, such as the GP20 process, launched on the 20th anniversary of the UN Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement in 2018. The Refugee Survey Quarterly will publish a special collection to engage researchers, practitioners and policy-makers afresh by feeding into this public debate and to promote new insights and thinking on policy-oriented challenges and solutions to internal displacement. Deadline: 5 July 2020. For more information, visit here.

A Call for Papers: The Displacees and Health – A Challenging Issue in Society

Refugees or internally displaced people are faced with multiple crises from local to international levels in the arena of detention, deportation, fragility, sexual orientation, gender identity, out place experience, armed non-state actors, HIV/AIDS, security, conflict, climate change, education of future generation, ethical concerns, human rights, disability etc. All these issues spur from the basic question of life which is close to the living conditions and life as human beings.  This seems to challenge the existence of health of man as a refugee irrespective of gender, class and citizenship. For more information contact, frnorbypaul@gmail.com.

WELCOME: COVID-19 & Displacement

Dear Colleagues:
Welcome to the CRN 11 April 2020 Newsletter: volume 2, Issue 4. Even though there is a sign of developing treatment for COVID-19 and a historic decline in new cases, we are still faced with a major public health emergency, especially in the United States. At 30 April 2020, the United States had 1.1 million confirmed cases (a third of the global cases of 3.1 million) and 57,400 deaths due to Coronavirus.

In addition to the race against time to discover vaccines and treatments, state-of-the art technology is also making its mark. The University of Washington is teaming up with Microsoft to develop a “contact-tracing app that helps public health agencies and doesn’t compromise your privacy”. Similarly, Apple and Google are partnering to release application programming interfaces (APIs) between Android and IOS devices using apps from public health authorities on COVID-19 contact tracing.

In spite of the immense progress being made to manage and curb COVID-19, the experience of displaced peoples is grimmer.  Displaced Peoples (i.e., internally displaced peoples, refugees and forced migrants) continue to be disproportionally impacted by COVID-19. On 20 April 2020, President Donald J. Trump tweeted that he would be “signing an Executive Order to temporarily suspend immigration into the United States”. In France, a country with the fifth highest number of COVID-19 cases in the world, homeless peoples are “fined for not staying indoors”.

In spite of the challenge faced by Displaced Peoples, some  efforts are being made by organizations such as UNICEF and the Zolberg’s Institute to ensure their protection.

DISPLACED PEOPLES’ RIGHTS AND PROTECTION

According to UN Women, emerging data shows that since the outbreak of COVID-19, reports of violence against women, and particularly domestic violence, have increased in certain countries as security, health, and money worries create tensions and strains accentuated by the cramped and confined living conditions of lockdown. More information is available here.

Working in close coordination with the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) will support countries to assess the social and economic impacts of COVID-19 and take urgent recovery measures to minimize long-term impact, particularly for vulnerable and marginalized groups. More information is available here.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) says respect for human rights across the spectrum, including economic and social rights, and civil and political rights, will be fundamental to the success of the public health response. More information is available here.

The United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) says the coronavirus pandemic endangers everyone on the planet, including refugees and other people displaced by conflict or persecution. More information is available here.

The International Chamber of Commerce in its Call to action to save Small and Medium Size Enterprise (SMEs) stated that governments should ensure tailored support for the most marginalized workers including women, migrant workers and refugees to avert worse-case scenarios of COVID-19. More information is available here.

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) says COVID-19 is having an unprecedented impact on mobility both in terms of regimes for border and migration management, and the situation of all people on the move, including those displaced by conflict or disaster. More information is available here.

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Executive Director, Henrietta Fore cautioned that COVID-19 will almost certainly gain foothold in refugee camps, crowded receptions centers, or detention facilities holding migrant families. Given how quickly the virus is spreading, such a scenario is looking imminent. More information is available here.

The World Bank, United Nations Educational (UNESCO), Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), UNICEF, and theWorld Food Program (WPF) issued a new guideline for reopening schools stressing the exacerbated negative impact and disruption prolonged closure of schools can have on marginalized children which includes the forcibly displaced. More information is available here.

A joint statement by the Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of IDPs, UNHCR, UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), and IOM marked the 10th anniversary of the adoption of the Protection and Assistance of Internally Displaced Persons in Africa (the Kampala Convention) on 23 October 2019. More information is here.

WELCOME: COVID-19 & Displacement

Dear Colleagues:

Welcome to the CRN 11 February-March 2020 Newsletter, our second issue in volume 2. Humanity is faced with a public health emergency- the coronavirus disease.

On 10 December 2019, one of the earliest known cases of a newly discovered coronavirus was reported in Wuhan Central Hospital. By 31 December 2019, 27 cases of what is now known as COVID-19 were confirmed by the Wuhan health officials as China officially notifies the World Health Organisation. On 30 January 2020, the World Health Organisation declared the Outbreak of COVID-19 a Public Health Emergency of International Concern and the Director General raised the outbreak to a pandemic on 11 March 2020.  According to the World Health Organisation Situation Report 75, as of 4 April 2020, there were 1,051,635 cases and 56,935 deaths of COVID-19 reported in 208 countries and territories world-wide.

We are aware of the disproportional impact of COVID-19 on vulnerable populations especially internally displaced peoples, refugees and forced migrants. We know how challenging it can be to practice social distancing in transit whether during flight or displaced at a make-shift camp. Whatever the situation, we encourage you to do all you can to keep surviving.

Interested in making the best use of your time during COVID-19 lockdown? Apply for the CRN11 newsletter editor position.  Submit a cover letter and CV to veronica.fynnbruey@tuki-tumarankeh.org  and benders@seattleu.edu.

DISPLACED PEOPLES’ RIGHTS AND PROTECTION

The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights says there should be no exception with COVID-19: People with disabilities, older persons, minority communities, indigenous peoples, internally displaced people, people affected by extreme poverty and living in overcrowded settings, people who live in residential institutions, people in detention, homeless people, migrants and refugees, people who use drugs, LGBT, and gender diverse persons – these and other groups need to receive support from governments. More information is available here.

According to the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), although the number of reported and confirmed cases of COVID-19 infection among refugees remains low, over 80 per cent of the world’s refugee population and nearly all the internally displaced people live in low to middle-income countries, many of which have weaker health, water and sanitation systems and need urgent support. The UN Refugee Agency provides a series of measures it is taking in its field operations to help respond to the COVID-19 public health emergency and prevent further spread. More information is available here.

The International Chamber of Commerce is supporting a call from the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) to prevent further spread of COVID-19 to the world’s most vulnerable communities and to advocate for inclusion of refugees and displaced people in national response plans. More information is available here.

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) released guidance for employers and businesses on protection of migrant workers during the COVID-19 crisis. Antonio Vitorino, IOM Director General, said the private sector, governments, and other stakeholders must protect the rights and well-being of the estimated 164 million international migrant workers and their communities around the world, as the number of COVID-19 cases passed 1.3 million. More information is available here.

In a statement released by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Executive Director, Henrietta Fore cautioned that COVID-19 will almost certainly gain foothold in refugee camps, crowded receptions centers, or detention facilities holding migrant families. Given how quickly the virus is spreading, such a scenario is looking imminent. More information is available here.

In a press release, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) raised concern over increasing COVID-19 cases recorded in the Greece Mainland Refugee and Migrant Camp. Some 23 migrants have tested positive for COVID-19 in the Ritsona open accommodation site in Central Greece – an IOM-managed camp which hosts 2,700 people. More information is available here.

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR)temporarily suspend resettlement travel for refugees. As countries drastically reduce entry into their territories owing to the COVID-19 global health crisis, and restrictions around international air travel are introduced, travel arrangements for resettling refugees are currently subject to severe disruptions. Some states have also placed a hold on resettlement arrivals given their public health situation, which impacts their capacity to receive newly resettled refugees. More information is available here.

A joint statement by the Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of IDPs, UNHCR, OCHA and IOM marked the 10thanniversary of the adoption of the Protection and Assistance of Internally Displaced Persons in Africa (the Kampala Convention) on 23 October 2019. This ground-breaking treaty (the Kampala Convention) has been ratified by 28 of the 55 countries on the continent. As the world’s first and only continent-wide legally binding instrument for the protection and assistance of internally displaced persons (IDPs), the Kampala Convention is a testament to the determination of African States to address the multiple challenges of IDPs. More information is here.

NEW PUBLICATION

Deadly Voyages: Migrant Journeys Across the Globe explores the burdens and impact of perilous migration, while considering which laws, policies, practices, and venues might establish empathy and protection for migrants. This interdisciplinary volume envisions and calls for a transformation in migration policy, motivated by the common goal of drastically reducing the peril migrants face when compelled to make their treacherous journeys. All contributors to this volume agree on the inadequacy of current approaches and the dire need for change in global migration law and policy. Therefore, the book seeks to inform, educate, persuade, and facilitate newer or less-heard perspectives, toward wider participation and influence within the forced migration policy debate. Guided by the famous advice of Karl Marx that the point should be changing the world rather than merely analyzing or interpreting it, the contributors suggest practical measures to fix the current gap in responses to migrant peril, along with strategies for diagnosing, countering, and promoting human romoting human dignity and social justice, with the aim of preventing future deaths and injuries in migrant journeys across the globe.

Reviews

Humans are a migratory species. Migration has enriched the world in so many ways. It has also brought out the worst among humankind. Deadly Voyages provides a collection of carefully studied accounts of the trials and tribulations of migration. It provides readers a deeper perspective into the human failings around migration and the resulting divisions and harms.
— Shafik Dharamsi, University of Texas at El Paso

An extremely timely and invaluable contribution to migration policy and scholarship. It offers a vivid and incisive account of migrants forced to take treacherous voyages by bringing together compelling empirical materials across the globe. This interdisciplinary book deserves wider readership among those interested in gaining deep insights into the dilemma and aspirations embedded in these journeys.
— Naohiko Omata, Oxford University

Deadly Voyages is a must-read text for anyone seeking to fully understand the true scale and multi-faceted impact of displacement in today’s seemingly ever-hostile world.
— Ben Hudson, University of Lincoln
