DIASPORA

Many Sudanese people have fled their homeland to join the growing number of Sudanese people living in other countries.

Through the hard work of humanitarian organisations, such as the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the International Red Cross and the various host states of Sudanese refugees including Australia, Canada and Germany, the resettlement of Sudanese people in safe third countries has been made possible. The needs of the Sudanese community when they arrive and settle in these nations is the focus of research presented on this page.

This article originally appeared in the Cairo Times in 1997. In it, Steve Negus explores the challenges faced by Sudanese refugees in attaining refugee status. The article explores the tension between the needs of the Sudanese asylum seeking community and the United Nations' Refugee Agency in Cairo. It concludes that, for the most part, the "UNHCR... is shirk[ing] its mandate".
