Refugee agency in the camps

As we read in the Agier piece, refugee life in the camps is stripped down to “bare life” as refugees are isolated politically, socially and economically.  This piece illustrates efforts by the UN to increase the agency refugees have over their lives in the camp.  An interesting complement and applied example to our Agier reading.
