Hi all,

By Wael Nasser

Today, I came across these two news articles that talk about how upon US request, several countries such as Uganda, North Macedonia, Kuwait, UAE, and Qatar will act as temporary host countries for Afghan evacuees, while other have refused to accept them. 

How do you think this policy of hosting Afghan evacuees temporarily would impact the resettlement of Afghan refugees to other countries particularly in Covid times?

I look forward to hearing your different perspectives.
