Format: Panel with Q&A

This moderated talk event will discuss the latest progress and pathways toward addressing the refugee crisis, ensuring the rights of refugees, and best assisting this group through aid and beyond.

The discussion will center on expediting progress and accountability for this vulnerable group for a more humane world where refugees and marginalized groups can recover from crises, and live in security and dignity with safeguarded rights. Delegates will come away with further insight into the refugee crisis and ideas on how they can best get involved with various organizations and sectors to support international refugees and migrants, and to address the risks in relocation and causes that are forcing people to flee.
