The State of Global Displacement and Refugee Advocacy: A Conversation with UN High Commissioner Filippo Grandi and Friends

This event took place on August 10, 2022.

This year, the world marked a grim milestone: more than 100 million people worldwide have been forced to leave their homes due to conflict, violence, and other crises. What must advocates for the rights of displaced people do from here?

Eric P. Schwartz, in his final public event as president of Refugees International after five distinguished years of service, hosted a wide-ranging conversation with UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi and Asylum Access CEO Sana Mustafa on the state of global displacement and resettlement, challenges and opportunities ahead, and the importance of refugee leadership in advocating for solutions to the world’s displacement crises.
