Summit for Refugees and Migrants - 19 September 2016
The UN General Assembly will host a high-level summit to address large movements of refugees and migrants,
with the aim of bringing countries together behind a more humane and coordinated approach.
This is the first time the General Assembly has called for a summit at the Heads of State and Government level
on large movements of refugees and migrants and it is a historic opportunity to come up with a blueprint for a better
international response. It is a watershed moment to strengthen governance of international migration and a unique
opportunity for creating a more responsible, predictable system for responding to large movements of refugees and migrants.
