The Global Compact on Refugees: a model for greater solidarity and cooperation
24 Sep 2018 -  Two years on from the General Assembly’s adoption of the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants, refugee numbers have continued to rise. At the same time, there have been notable developments in responding to large movements of refugees. These have contributed to the articulation of the global compact on refugees pointing the way for more predictable support to host countries and refugees, and sustainable responses overall. The high level event will highlight positive approaches that have been taken since the New York Declaration in responding to the global refugee situation, including initiatives to strengthen the resilience of refugees and communities where they reside. It will also provide an opportunity to show how the proposed global compact will take these and other positive developments to scale.
