Forum on Refugee and Migration Policy

30 November 2016 - 9:45am to 5:15pm

Royal Society of Arts, London



People are on the move in every part of the world. A growing number are compelled to leave their own country as a result of armed conflict, political violence, serious human rights violations, natural disasters and the consequences of climate change.

Governments are failing to address the issue of human displacement in a coordinated and cooperative manner. The refugee and migration issue has become a deeply divisive one, both within and between states.

What are the opportunities and challenges in light of September’s UN Summit for Refugees and Migrants and Leaders’ Summit on the Global Refugee Crisis? Where is the international community heading in relation to more effective cooperation in response to refugee movements? How can examples of good practice, such as productive partnerships with civil society and the private sector, be built upon and replicated in other contexts?

This roundtable will bring together a diverse and international group of experts from government, international organizations, civil society, research institutes and the private sector.   

The event is co-hosted with the Overseas Development Institute.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
