M: How do you think U.N.H.C.R. should be doing?
W: Well, I don't have the answers,
W: but I know that this is one thing that needs to be addressed and solved because there does need to be a real presence here to help count the people and register the people.
M: Do you think that the global community has a responsibility to address that?
W: Well I think the global community always has a responsibility to any humanitarian crisis.
W: And I think it's in our best interest to address a humanitarian crisis on this scale because displacement can lead to a lot of instability and aggression.
W: We certainly don't want that. A lot of people feel it's a little calmer now.
W: This is the time to really discuss and and try to get these communities back together.
W: But if these communities don't start coming back together properly,
W: if we don't start really counting the people,
W: understanding where they are, what they need, making sure the schools are being built, making sure the electricity,the water and all these needs are being met
W: and also understanding that a lot of the people that will return are going to come back to houses that are occupied or destroyed and bombed out.
W: It's going to be a big operation to understand the needs, to address it to help people put the pieces of their life back together and return to their communities.
W: So it's really just getting the plan together, getting the group together and everybody actively focused on helping the refugees.
M: What would be the message that you would want to carry out of here back home or even the message that you would want to get out internationally in terms of what's happening here,
M: the refugee crisis, the consequences that could happen in the future if it's not properly addressed.
W: I always hate speculation on the news, so I don't want to be somebody who speculates.
W: Um but I think it's clear that a displaced unstable population is what happens in Iraq, and how Iraq settles in the years to come is going to affect the entire Middle East.
W: And a big part of what is going to affect how it settles is how these people are returned and settled into their homes, into their community
W: and brought back together and whether they can live together and what their communities look like, so it does have broad implications.
