UN General Assembly hall with speaker Mogens Lykketoft, President of the Assembly’s seventieth session.
This is the first time the General Assembly has called for a summit at the Heads of State and Government level on large movements of refugees and migrants and it is a historic opportunity to come up with a blueprint for a better international response.
It is a watershed moment to strengthen governance of international migration and a unique opportunity for creating a more responsible, predictable system for responding to large movements of refugees and migrants.
When and where?
The Summit is an all day event on Monday 19 September 2016 at the UNHQ in New York.
