This chapter is about a British programme launched in the early 1990s for the resettlement of refugees from Bosnia Herzegovina. The problem addressed is how refugees have experienced the particular policy interventions implemented in the name of humanitarian aid. The purpose is to offer a critical view based on the presupposition that intentions meant to increase refugee empowerment are one thing, to operationalise these intentions effectively is quite another step. The outbreak of war in Bosnia Herzegovina in April 1992 produced the largest flow of refugees and displaced persons in Europe since the Second World War. Thousands of people fled outwards and sought safety in other European countries, and the term 'ethnic cleansing' entered the world's vocabulary. The discovery by journalists of the existence of concentration camps in Bosnia eventually led to the closure of those camps, and UNHCR appealed for countries to offer a place of safety for those who had been detained. Britain offered to take one thousand persons, plus their dependants, and eventually around 2,500 persons in total arrived as part of this quota.
