Western nations are in retreat from their traditional willingness to take in refugees. The United States’ recent halving of its annual intake comes as Europe has spent billions of euros attempting to keep refugees from its jurisdiction, even briefly abandoning search and rescue operations in the Mediterranean. Australia, meanwhile, has used a system of “offshore processing” (indefinite incarceration on islands outside its jurisdiction and judicial and media oversight) to effectively prevent unauthorized arrivals by sea since 2013.
From 13 to 14 March 2017, UNAMID’s Civil Affairs Section, in collaboration with the UN Development Programme (UNDP), Oxfam America, local authorities and native Administrations, jointly organized a two- day peace conference in El Serief Locality to create a platform to discuss intercommunal conflict issues between the Beni Hussein, Northern Rezeigat and other minority tribes in the area and other areas of North Darfur state. The conference was also aimed at rebuilding social cohesion and maintenance of peaceful coexistence in the area.
• Food security levels in the country remain critical, with famine declared in southern Unity state at the end of February.
