Listening to Tim’s description of the “Protection of Civilians” camps in South Sudan makes me wonder whether there are not lots of other places in the world where such sites would be extremely helpful. For example, could the UN arrange to set up such sites in Pakistan or some of the other “stans” around Afghanistan, so that people fearing the Taliban could cross the border and go there for refuge?
