The decade ahead: Defending protection and people on the move
17 Nov 2020, 11am-12pm AEDT
Think through the big issues in global displacement in the decade ahead in this opening panel. This prismatic panel includes people tackling the challenges emerging for internally displaced people, asylum seekers, refugees, migrants and others caught in humanitarian crises. Amid hard borders and hardening politics, how will people seeking protection find safety? When fear, threat and risk are the frames, where are the solutions? How can refugee and local communities, international actors, and humanitarian organisations respond? And what additional challenges do the impacts of climate change pose?
