JOIN A PANEL DISCUSSION on the side of this year’s 2017 UN General Assembly, which marks the first year after the dual refugee Summits of 2016. The panel will feature new research, analysis and recommendations for the humanitarian community on how we can continue to improve our collective response to an unwavering number of refugees.
Each panel participant will offer a unique perspective related to the
objectives of the Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework, including
1) easing pressure on host communities while
2) improving refugee self-reliance,
3) expanding access to resettlement in third countries and other complementary pathways, and
4) fostering conditions that enable refugees voluntarily to
return to their home countries.
WITH PANEL PARTICIPATION FROM:
Catholic Relief Services, Refugees
International, War Child Canada,
Jesuit Refugee Services/USA and
Norwegian Refugee Council
PLEASE RSVP to [email protected] by September 19th for access information.
