          CGRS Website To Be Included in Library of Congress Web Archive Project

          The Center for Gender and Refugee Studies’ website will be added to the Library’s wide-ranging collection of Internet materials related to public policy.

          The CGRS website offers a trove of resources for researchers and organizations interested in issues surrounding refugees and asylum. Acknowledging its unique and valuable content, the Library of Congress praised the website as an “important part of [its public policy] collection and the historical record.”  

          The CGRS materials include advocacy tools, policy proposals, legal expertise, scholarly research, two extensive studies CGRS co-authored on the migration of unaccompanied children to the U.S. and an extensive database that tracks the outcomes of more than 10,000 asylum cases. The content will initially be made available to researchers who visit the Library or by special arrangement. In the future, the Library might also include the CGRS website on its public access site, which would allow researchers from all over the world to consult the resources remotely.  

          “CGRS is honored that our website was selected for the Library of Congress Web Archive Project. It is a recognition of the impact of our work on public policy and refugee and asylum law,” said Professor Karen Musalo, who serves as director of the Center.
