The Australian National Committee on Refugee Women (ANCORW) and the Network for Refugee Voices (NRV), in partnership with Refugee Council of Australia (RCOA) and Independent Diplomat (ID), will convene a Global Summit of Refugee ahead of the 2018 UNHCR NGO Consultations, in Geneva, Switzerland. The two-day event will convene refugee-led organizations and refugee change-makers from around the world to gather to discuss their lived experiences and propose solutions for more effective and sustainable global refugee policy. The Summit is also an opportunity for participants to discuss building a network of refugee-led organisations, networks and advocates, to coordinate future activities and share best practices.
The Summit will take place ahead of UNHCR’s NGO Consultations “Putting People First,” to be held 27-29 in Geneva. If interested, we hope you will also attend the NGO Consultations after the Summit. You can find more information on the Consultations, here.
If you are a representative from a non-refugee-led organization interested in participating in the Summit, please contact us directly at:. We will confirm the participation of non-refugee stakeholders with you shortly.
