For several decades, the world has witnessed a multiplicity of military invasions, civil wars, violent political upheavals, natural disasters etc that have left in their wake the destruction of food crops; the debris of human habitats; and most sadly, the rotting corpses of those unlucky in escape.
These situations have spawned several generations of stateless people who only find solace in a different country.

The iSHARE programme is primarily a forum for discussing refugee issues openly. Participants will get the opportunity to ask general questions on refugees, which resource persons will do their best to answer.
