Summary expansion
Papers from a November 1999 workshop on mortality patterns in complex emergencies, organized by the Roundtable on the Demography of Forced Migration, and held in Washington, D.C., overview the state of knowledge about mortality in past complex humanitarian emergencies. Case studies on Rwanda, North Korea, and Kosovo, commissioned for the workshop, and on Cambodia, added after the workshop, reflect on emergencies involving forced migration. Other regions discussed include China, Bosnia, Sierra Leone, and Afghanistan. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
