Consultation: The New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants and the Rights of Persons with Disabilities

03 October 2017-  Palais des Nations, Geneva  (3.30- 6pm)

The New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants was adopted unanimously by the General Assembly in 2016 to strengthen global response to people on the move. The New York Declaration contains a Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework, which is currently being rolled out in a number of countries. The Declaration also sets in motion a process for the development of a global compact on refugees, to be proposed to the General Assembly in 2018.

The International Disability Alliance (IDA) and UNHCR would like to invite you to a consultation to receive more information on this process from UNHCR, and to discuss how we can use this opportunity to promote the rights of persons with disabilities in refugee response.

CART and IS will be available. Remote (online) participation will be possible.

For more details, please refer to the flyer/invitation attached below.
