This person is no longer with the Carnegie Endowment.
Kathleen Newland's work focuses on the international and domestic response to refugee crises worldwide. She examines the growing reluctance of governments to provide asylum along conventional lines as well as the innovative measures, including "humanitarian intervention," taken to address outflows from Kosovo, Central Africa and the Former Soviet Union, among other places. She also works on the development of new national and regional migration policies. Ms. Newland co-directs the Endowment's Moscow Center. Since January 2000, she has chaired the Women's Commission for Refugee Women and Children, and serves on the Board of the International Rescue Committee.
Before coming to the Endowment in mid-1994, Ms. Newland was an independent consultant to the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, the Secretary General of the United Nations, and the World Bank. She was a member of the international relations faculty at the London School of Economics from 1988 to 1992. Prior to that, she was on the staff of the United Nations University in Tokyo.
Ms. Newland is a graduate of Harvard University and the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University. She is the author of numerous publications in the fields of refugee policy, international migration, population, and women’s issues. She was the principal author of UNHCR’s pioneering State of the World’s Refugees, 1993. Her recent publications include "The Decade in Review" in World Refugee Survey, 1999.
