UNHCR in partnership with the Pan African Parliament, the African Peer Review Mechanism and the Department of Home Affairs commemoration of World Refugee Day.

In line with the African Union Protected content “Year of Refugees, Returnees and Internally Displaced Persons: Towards Durable Solutions to Forced Displacement in Africa”, the UN Refugee Agency is organising a panel discussion focusing on the positive contributions that refugees are able to make if they receive support from various stakeholders including governments, international organizations, civil society, host communities and private sector in the spirit of Global Compact on Refugees.

The panel discussion will offer the opportunity for various institutions to share their knowledge and experience as well as highlight challenges and progress made.

The triple Grammy Award winning Soweto Gospel Choir will perform during the event alongside refugee cultural groups.

The event will take place at the Pan African Parliament (Midrand) on Thursday 20 June (08h00 – 13h30).
