Dialogue continues on Global Compact for refugees

11 December 2017

The international community needs to do much more to agree on practical solutions that will help the world’s 22.5 million refugees, the UN said on Tuesday.

In its push for a Global Compact on the issue, UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is hosting a two-day Dialogue in Geneva.

Challenges that need to be addressed include the detention of refugees and their lack of access to basic services including work, education and healthcare, UNHCR spokesperson Adrian Edwards told Daniel Johnson.
