1. General Background
UNHCR France is collaborating with a wide range of stakeholders and has established partnerships with civil society, the private sector, governmental organisations over a number of years. With the adoption of the Global Compact on Refugees (GCR), more opportunities have emerged for engaging with France to mobilise humanitarian and development support for refugee situations worldwide.
The first Global Refugee Forum will take place in Geneva on 17 and 18 December. It is an unique opportunity to strenghten solidarity with refugees and the countries that host them, including through enhanced outreach to traditional and non-traditional partners. In France, better engagement from all actors in society would be a way to augment collective approaches to improve the protection space and access to solutions for refugees and stateless people.
Driven by the whole-of-a-society approach and with due consideration to the « aim and spirit » of the GCR, UNHCR France is seizing opportunities for advocacy and for playing a meaningful catalytic role with the objective to mobilise resources to support: the protection of Refugees and asylum seekers, the sensitisation and the engagement of the French society – incl. combatting xenophobia and promoting a positive image of Refugees and asylum seekers -, the integration of Refugees and asylum seekers and UNHCR operations worldwide.
Therefore, UNHCR intends to develop concrete projects in France in a multistakeholder and partnership approach. The aim is to raise awareness of refugees among the public, highlight best practices in terms of refugee integration across France and encourage France to make pledges at the Forum. Various actors will be involved in bringing this projects to life, including the main partners, as well as refugees, local NGO’s and various UNHCR relevant units.
