안녕하세요. 유엔난민기구 한국대표부입니다.
제2 회 글로벌 난민 포럼(Global Refugee Forum)의 취재를 위한 등록 안내 드립니다.
4년마다 열리는 글로벌 난민 포럼은 난민 사안에 대해 각국 정부 및 사회 각계 각층 그리고 난민들이 모여 난민 사안에 대한 근본적인 해결책을 논의하고 구체적인 행동을 서약하는 가장 큰 국제적 토론의 장입니다.

2019년 제1 회 포럼에 이어 두 번째로 열리는 이번 포럼은 2023년 12월 13일부터 15일까지 스위스 제네바 팔렉스포에서 개최됩니다.
오늘날 1억 1천만 명이 넘는 사람들이 박해, 분쟁, 폭력, 인권침해와 공공 질서를 방해하는 각종 문제들로 인해 강제로 집을 떠났으며, 이중 3천 640만 명은 난민입니다.
제2 회 글로벌 난민 포럼은 2019년 포럼에서 이루어졌던 논의와 서약들이 제대로 이행되어왔는지 확인하고, 새로운 서약을 통해 각국의 굳건한 연대를 확인하는 자리가 될 것입니다.

Media Advisory
Second Global Refugee Forum, December 2023 
To News Editors & Correspondents: the following information is by way of background. 

Held every four years, the Global Refugee Forum (GRF, or the Forum) is the world’s largest international gathering on refugee issues. 

The second GRF will be convened at Palexpo in Geneva, Switzerland, from 13 to 15 December 2023, with an advance day for side events on 12 December 2023. 

The 2023 GRF will be co-hosted by UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, and the Government of Switzerland. The forum will be co-convened by Colombia, France, Japan, Jordan, Niger and Uganda, together with UNHCR. 

Worldwide, 110 million people were forcibly displaced (36.4 million refugees) at mid-2023 as a result of persecution, conflict, violence, human rights violations and events seriously disturbing public order. The 2023 GRF aims to focus a range of actors on finding solutions to their plight, and to support the objectives of the Global Compact on Refugees (GCR) as affirmed by the United Nations General Assembly in December 2018. 

It will provide an opportunity to build on and highlight the progress made by Governments and other stakeholders towards the implementation of pledges and initiatives announced at the first GRF in 2019. It will offer a platform for participants to announce new pledges and share learning to inform and inspire further responsibility-sharing and facilitate comprehensive responses. 

The Forum will bring together United Nations Member States together with relevant stakeholders, including: host community members and refugees themselves; international organizations; humanitarian and development actors; international and regional financial institutions; other regional organizations and local authorities; civil society, including faith-based and sports organizations; academics and other experts; representatives from the private sector; and media. 

In addition to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi, the Secretary-General of the United Nations Antonio Guterres and other leaders and ministers are set to attend. The participation of Heads of State or Government for co-convening countries will be confirmed closer to the event. Media are encouraged to attend in person or follow the event by livestream. 

The 2023 UNHCR Nansen Refugee Award ceremony will take place in Geneva on 13 December, on the opening night of the GRF at Palexpo. The event will bring together States, private-sector leaders, UN and international organizations, NGOs and refugee-led organizations to celebrate the exceptional work of the Global Laureate and the four Regional Winners. The programme will showcase the winners’ work and feature live artistic performances. Details on media coverage options will be updated soon.

The Global Compact on Refugees, affirmed by the United Nations General Assembly in 2018, put in place a new comprehensive refugee response model. It envisions more predictable and sustainable support to: 

      - ease pressures on countries hosting refugees; 
      - enhance opportunities for refugees to become self-reliant; 
      - expand refugees’ access to third-country solutions such as resettlement and
        other pathways; 
      - support conditions in refugees’ countries of origin so that they may be able 
        to return in safety and dignity. 

The compact sets out arrangements to ensure that both refugees and their host communities benefit from this support. A central arrangement is the Global Refugee Forum where States and other actors come together every four years to share good practices and contribute with financial support, technical expertise and policy changes to help reach the goals of the Global Compact. These contributions are key to transforming the aspirations of the compact into positive changes in the lives of refugees. 

The first Global Refugee Forum took place in December 2019 and was a true milestone in building solidarity with the world’s refugees and the countries and communities that host them. 

The first Global Refugee Forum took place 17 and 18 December 2019 in Geneva, Switzerland and brought the international community together to demonstrate solidarity with the world’s refugees and the countries and communities that host them. States and other stakeholders demonstrated leadership, vision and ambition to share the responsibility for refugees by announcing pledges to improve the lives of refugees and their host communities. Participants also shared good practices that illustrate how the Global Compact is already making a difference around the world. Reflecting the importance of the occasion, the Forum was attended by some 3,000 participants, including four Heads of State or Government, more than 90 Officials at the Ministerial level, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, approximately 55 international organizations (including United Nations system entities and specialized agencies), representatives of more than 130 companies and foundations, approximately 250 civil society organizations and some 70 refugees. It also generated considerable interest from the public at large and media coverage around the world. The refugees who attended the Forum noted the unprecedented depth of their engagement in both the preparations for this global discussion of refugee issues and the event itself, as well as the pledges they themselves made to contribute to the implementation of the Global Compact on Refugees.
