As I continue to prepare for my fact-finding trip to Bangladesh (and hopefully Myanmar) in December, I was pleased to review a comprehensive review of the situation: https://social.shorthand.com/devex/ngYBhs38Hn/a-scramble-to-provide-services-in-bangladeshs-far-flung-refugee-sites?mkt_tok=eyJpIjoiTjJNMllUSTJOalV3T1dZMCIsInQiOiJSVndlMHBzUlpoZTF1VzhrRDZ4bjBLT2F1ZnNORWQ1T1E0YXNIXC91d0ZkeVJGMFRLT1RWWVFBY1ZCbkZacEJhU3hSdHViXC90ZzlyejRUZnVoc1NtXC9kNzBFZTBWYWJ1UDgrcnJOXC8wZVE5R1wvSXNEYk9SWWY2VEpsM09ib0xiVXJ2In0%3D

 

People willing to work hard to set up temporary shelters and camp life in Bangladesh, but from my own experience in a number of countries, discussions are going on in these camps about the work that is ahead of them to return home.   For most, home is between 40 and 80 miles to the east.   I would like to understand the efforts that must be underway considering how to facilitate 'voluntary repatriation' in safety and dignity.
