UN Refugee Agency Closes Some Tanzanian Camps

Scoop

Above is a link to the article. I found this article intresting because it emphesizes the roals that non governmental organizations play in the existance and upkeep of refugee camps. Also it is shocking the sheer numbers of refugees;

About 287,000 people now live in refugee camps across Tanzania, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said yesterday, the lowest total since 1996 and down from more than 500,000 just four years ago. These figures do not include refugees living outside camps.

Although I am not sure there is a particular bias to this article, it is defanantly an emotional appeal aimed at inciting action to alleviate the refugee problem.

Afghanistan, the Other ‘Surge’

Eben Kaplan, the author of this blog, seems to be well balanced and thorough with his perspective on international politics. A link is available to an about the author page which lists his credentials; he has a BA in Political Science from Bard College. He contrasts the situation in Iraq and Afghanistan with statements that appeal to logic rather than emotion, providing support for his assertions in the form of links to other on-line news sources. The advertisements on his blog are for political science books. There were however no posts on the blog.
