Al Fuertes Conducts Field Research at MaeLa Refugee Camp

NCC faculty member Al Fuertes traveled to the MaeLa camp, the largest Karen refugee camp along the Thailand-Burma border, to conduct field research.  His visit inside the refugee camp was coordinated by Shanti Volunteer Association (SVA) and the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA).  The focus of professor Fuertes' research, conducted July 22 through August 5, was on the return and resettlement of Karen refugues given the political reforms that are happening in Burma (Myanmar).
