Mrs. Ogata talked about her book The Turbulent Decade: Confronting the Refugee Crises of the 1990s, published by W. W. Norton and Company. In the book she recounted her experiences and the lessons she learned as U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees from 1990 to 2000. She explored issues of refugee protection and humanitarian assistance, coordination among humanitarian organizations, NATO and military groups and the global political and strategic climate in which these crises occurred. She was joined by retired General Wesley Clark, who led U.S. and allied troops in NATO’s war in Kosovo in 1999 and worked closely with Mrs. Ogata. They addressed some of the challenges that humanitarian aid workers faced during the refugee crises of the 1990s, focusing on relief efforts in several regions, including the Balkans and Afghanistan. They also address the current global climate and the potential for future refugees. The discussion was moderated by Ms. Priest, author of The Mission: Waging War and Keeping Peace with America’s Military, published by W.W. Norton and Company. close
