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

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?
