On 12 May 1999, the first 200 ethnic Kosovan Albanian refugees from Kosovo arrived in Tasmania. They were housed initially at the Brighton Military Barracks (renamed the Tasmanian Peace Haven).[3] At the height of the conflict in Kosovo in 1999, 4,000 Kosovo Albanian refugees who had been driven out of their homes by the Serbian army and had been in refugee camps, were flown to safe havens dotted around Australia. However, most were forced to return when their temporary visas expired.[4][5] In response to the request for help from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Australia developed a new category of visa: the Safe Haven visa. It did not allow for the possibility of permanent residency in Australia for the refugees,[6] but did allow the Kosovars special entry to Australia - for an initial period of three months - which could be extended until it became safe for them to return home.[7] In July 1999, the UNHCR assessed the situation in Kosovo as being secure enough for ...

In 1994, when the First Chechen War started, the number of refugees in Ingushetia from both conflicts doubled. According to the UN, for every citizen of Ingushetia, one refugee arrived from Ossetia or Chechnya. This influx was very problematic for the economy, which collapsed after Aushev's success. The second Russo-Chechen war which started in 1999 brought more refugees (at some point there was one refugee for every Ingush citizen: 240,000 from Chechnya plus 60,000 from North Ossetia at the peak in 2000) and misery to Ingushetia. In 2001, Aushev was forced to leave his presidency and was succeeded by Murat Zyazikov, a former KGB general. The situation worsened under his rule. Many young Ingush men were abducted by Russian and Ossetian death squads.[78][79][80][81] according to Human rights watchdogs Memorial[82] and Mashr.[83] The Ingush mountains are closed for Ingush nationals.[84] The number of rebel attacks in Ingushetia rose, especially after the number of Russian security forces was ...
The first phone conversation between the United States President Donald Trump and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull took place in February 2017 and lasted around 25 minutes.[60] During the call, Trump disagreed with Turnbull on a deal that had been made during President Barack Obama's presidency.

Though the details of the trade were not made transparent to the public, a public briefing announced the deal would be applied only to existing refugees and that they would be resettled in America in the coming year.[62][63] On Twitter, February 2, 2017, Trump tweeted that the refugee agreement was a "dumb deal".[64] Notwithstanding the ...

The natural environment of the hills used to be dense montane rain forest. Swidden agricultural practices and logging have much reduced the old-growth forest areas which have been replaced by secondary forest.[7][8]. For centuries the Thai highlands have been inhabited with hill tribes mostly from Chinese or Tibeto-Burman descent, such as the Akha, Yao, Lahu, Khmu, Hmong and Lisu.[9] These human groups immigrated into this relatively empty region fleeing persecution or harsh central rule in their respective environments, as well as seeking new land for their shifting agricultural productions system. For the past decades these groups have been undergoing a process of integration into the Thai mainstream. Owing to the unrest in Burma, some refugee camps have been established for cross-border refugees in the Thai highlands.[10] Certain Kayah and Karen communities, like the "long-necked Karen", are regularly visited by organized tourist groups.[11]. At higher elevations, above 1,000 metres ...
After the establishment of the Republic of Turkey, which ended the caliphates and sultanate in Turkey, there have been several Kurdish rebellions since the 1920s: Koçkiri Rebellion,[33] Sheikh Said Rebellion, Dersim Rebellion,[34] Ararat rebellion. In 1937-38, approximately 10,000-15,000 Alevis and Kurds[35][36][37] were killed and thousands went into exile.

Referring to the main policy document in this context, the 1934 law on resettlement, a policy targeting the region of Dersim as one of its first test cases, with disastrous consequences for the local population.[38] The Dersim massacre is often confused with the Dersim Rebellion that took place during these events.[35] After the 1960 coup, the State Planning Organization (Turkish: Devlet Planlama Teşkilatı, DPT) was established under the Prime Ministry to solve the problem of Kurdish separatism and underdevelopment. In 1961, the DPT prepared a ...

Their population declined from about 1 million in 1971 to 600,000 in the late 1980s.[22] Refugees International has called them a "neglected and stateless" people as they are denied citizenship by the governments of Bangladesh and Pakistan.[23] As nearly 40 years has ...
Tracking the transmission of infectious diseases is called disease surveillance. Surveillance of infectious diseases in the public realm traditionally has been the responsibility of public health agencies, either on the (inter)national or a local level. Public health staff rely on health care workers and microbiology laboratories to report cases of reportable diseases to them. The analysis of aggregate data can show the spread of a disease and is at the core of the specialty of epidemiology. To understand the spread of the vast majority of non-notifiable diseases, data either need to be collected in a particular study, or existing data collections can be mined, such as insurance company data or antimicrobial drug sales for example. For diseases transmitted within an institution, such as a hospital, prison, nursing home, boarding school, orphanage, refugee camp etc., infection control specialists are employed, who will review medical records to analyze transmission as part of a hospital ...
In 1946, the university established the first drama department in the country.[10] In the same year, Bristol began offering special entrance exams and grants to aid the resettlement of servicemen returning home. Student numbers continued to increase, and the Faculty of Engineering eventually needed the new premises that were to become Queen's Building in 1955. This substantial building housed all of the university's engineers until 1996, when the department of Electrical Engineering and Department of Computer Science moved over the road into the new Merchant Venturers' Building to make space for these rapidly expanding fields. Today, Queen's Building caters for most of the teaching needs of the Faculty and provides academic space for the "heavy" engineering subjects (civil, mechanical, and aeronautical). With unprecedented growth in the 1960s, particularly in undergraduate numbers, the Student's Union eventually acquired larger premises in a new building in the Clifton area of the city, in 1965. ...
Her marriage to Germanicus had served to unite the imperial family. Agrippina may have suspected Tiberius' involvement in the death of her husband and, with Germanicus dead, she no longer had any familial ties to the emperor. Historian Richard Alston says it is likely that either Tiberius or Livia were behind the exile of Agrippina's half-sister and the death of Postumus. He notes the death of Agrippina's mother, who starved herself to death amidst her exile in AD 14, linking her death to Tiberius' disdain for her.[34] Agrippina was vocal about her feelings claiming that Germanicus was murdered to promote Drusus the Younger as Tiberius' heir, and worried that the birth of the Younger Drusus' twin sons would displace her own sons in the line of succession. Her fears proved to be unfounded, with her son Nero receiving the toga virilis ("toga of manhood") from Tiberius and the Younger Drusus on 7 June AD 20. Further, Nero was promised the office of quaestor five years before the ordinary age and ...
