"The Fifth World Congress for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Refugees was held in Rome, 17-22 November 2003. The programme included various conferences on the current situation of migrants and refugees in the world and focussed on existing pastoral challenges, the Church's vision on human mobility, its mission in a multicultural or intercultural society and ecumenical and inter-religious dialogue". The Most Rev. Ian George, Anglican Archbishop of Adelaide, and Convenor of the Anglican Communion's Refugee and Migrant Network attended the conference as did representative from other non-Catholic churches.
A brief over view of the work of the Refugee and Migrant Network, which is chaired by Archbishop Ian George of Adelaide, Australia. Also includes regional reports from around the Communion including reports from Canada by Elsa Musa and Ann Robson."The number of refugees in the world at the end of last year  was just over 14 million, according to the World Refugee Survey of the US Committee for Refugees. Just over 21 million people are `internally displaced' : like refugees, they have been forced from their homeland, but are not protected by international law because they remain inside their own countries. Some authorities put the figures much higher than these."
"At the invitation of the Anglican Province of Korea, over 30 members of the Anglican Peace and Justice Network (APJN), representing 24 Provinces of the Anglican Communion, met on the grounds of Yonsei University in Seoul, Korea, from April 14 to April 21, 1999. .... In this summary of the meeting, the committee reports are presented first, followed by in-depth reports from the Provinces and some Dioceses of the Communion. .... There are also the immediate, active concerns of the APJN as a collective sounding board for the Communion. There are two papers on`Alternatives to War', in light of the international involvement in Kosovo and potential involvement elsewhere. And there is attention paid to problems in Korea, the host country. The group considered the problem of `Korean Re-Unification', and lifted up the ways in which the Christian churches are attempting to become partners in a healing process. Members of APJN made a visit to the DMZ, the dividing line between the estranged nations of the peninsula. And they considered ways to continue the dialogue, launched at Lambeth in 1998, of the church with its gay and lesbian members in a `Panel on Homosexuality'." -- Coming to Seoul, p. 3.

Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World double issue for Michaelmas and Advent 2004. An editorial and series of short reports from different agencies and countries on the subject of displaced peoples and migrant workers "moving families". "Much of the abuse of migrant workers goes on behind closed doors and is unknown. In England, the deaths of the cockle pickers made some of it visible. The pictures and reports from areas such as the Sudan also make visible the terrible suffering caused to families displaced by war. We hope that this newsletter adds to the knowledge and understanding of the plight of families forced to move -- including those whose way of life is travelling."
