by Anica Mikus Kos and Sanja Derviskadic-Jovanovic

This article documents reflections on four years of psychosocial support given to young refugees from Bosnia and Herzegovina by members of the Center for Psychosocial Help to Refugees at the Slovene Foundation, Ljubljana.

I. Background

The terms of reference of the InterAgency Mission to Afghanistan were informed by decisions of the Administrative Committee on Coordination (ACC) and the Consultative Committee on Programme and Operational Questions (CCPOQ). The Mission was undertaken in the context of the ACC's review of UN peace-building policies and practices and reflected its decision to seek to put into place the elements of a common strategic framework in selected countries experiencing crisis situations.
