Prospects for Good Governance of Refugee Situations: The Local – Global Nexus.

In the past ten years, the world has witnessed a critical time period during which refugee situations have challenged established social and political spheres and affected the way in which the local and global interact with each other.

It is specifically within this context that we need to critically examine and learn from some of the challenges and find opportunities to improve governance in various refugee contexts. Refugee situations are increasingly characterized by prolonged periods of exile in urban settlements rather than in regulated camps. The protracted displacement of refugees combined with their urbanization become subjects of international debate and feature prominently on states' political agendas and in urban governance strategies. This shift in the nature of refugee situations merits far greater management and coordination between all relevant stakeholders including state and non-state actors on local, regional, national and global levels.
