[International Refugee Rights Conference]<http://ccrweb.ca/en/refugee-conference-2018>

Join non-governmental organizations, academics, government officials, UNHCR representatives, refugees and vulnerable migrants from across Canada and around the world to exchange and collaborate with others committed to the rights of refugees and other vulnerable migrants

This three-day international conference at York University in Toronto is designed to enhance effectiveness in promoting the human rights of refugees and vulnerable migrants, and for non-governmental organizations and academics – in particular - to strategize across borders to better meet their evolving needs.

Whether you are new to refugee sponsorship or you have more advanced questions relating to Canada’s refugee resettlement program, there is something for everyone interested in the future of refugee resettlement to Canada and around the world.

The International Refugee Rights Conference will feature sessions on:

·         Durable Solutions: Addressing the challenge of low resettlement numbers
·         Sharing Refugee Sponsorship Experiences
·         Review of the role of the UNHCR
·         Applying comprehensive responses and the Global Compact on Refugees
·         Addressing Gender-based Violence: The role of local women’s leadership
·         Strategies for ending statelessness in situations of forced displacement
… and much more
