Head of U.N. Refugee Agency Calls for Greater Multilateral Cooperation on Migration

António Guterres, UN high commissioner for refugees, continued Georgetown's conversation on global governance with his presentation on "Present and Future Challenges of Global Forced Displacement." (The event video and transcript are available.)

The high commissioner spoke about the main displacement and humanitarian challenges facing the international community at a time when the number of people uprooted by conflict and persecution stands at its highest since World War II. A key excerpt from his lecture is posted below. 

Georgetown faculty, students, and scholars around the world offer their responses to the high commissioner's remarks. All are welcome to join the conversation through the commenting feature.
