Resource for Protection of Migrants

5 The Migrants in Countries in Crisis (MICIC) Initiative is a very practical guide for agencies and countries dealing with people trapped in countries when there are natural disasters or conflict. Imagine if you are a worker, a missionary, or even a tourist trapped in a country undergoing a crisis. You need help and resources. You are not a refugee, so the international conventions for refugees would not apply to you. This guide is full of (unusually) practical suggestions for people who might “fall into the cracks” of other kinds of help for migrants.

The resource is online now at but only as an “Advance Copy” in English.  It will be translated into all UN languages by the end of the year.
