The Researcher is a new initiative of the Refugee Documentation Centre. It is an electronic newsletter distributed by e-mail and published quarterly. The purpose of The Researcher is to provide our clients and interested parties with up to date information on developments in the RDC. The newsletter will cover topics related to Country of Origin Information and legal research. We hope to feature a specialist article on a particular theme in each issue. We will also let you know of recent library acquisitions, new resources and relevant RDC statistics. We welcome your feedback on any of these matters.
