The 24-hour news cycle brings us constant coverage of the plight of refugees in motion. But how are human rights monitored and protected within the fencing of refugee camps for static populations? How are basic rights ensured and a practical standard of living made possible? Brad Adams, Asia director of Human Rights Watch, sheds some light and responds to questions from KQED’s award-winning Thuy Vu, who experienced life in two refugee camps following the Vietnam War.
