Refugees, Returnees and Displaced Persons: Towards Durable Solutions

Language: English, subtitles Por

An estimated 68 million people are forcibly displaced worldwide and more than a third of these people are in Africa. This includes as well 6.3 million refugees and asylum-seekers and 14.5 million displaced persons.
In this context, the African Union has chosen 2019’s AU Theme as Refugees, Returnees and Internally Displaced Persons: towards Durable Solutions to Forced Displacement in Africa. With this choice, African leaders recognize the need for comprehensive and inclusive responses to major migration trends and their dynamics and challenges on the continent and abroad.
The high scale of the displacement crisis is compounded by the risks of trafficking, human rights violations, lack of adequate humanitarian assistance, sexual and gender-based violence, detention of asylum-seekers, deportation, xenophobia and overall discrimination of refugees.

The session focused on best practices of countries identified by the African Union that could inspire others in improving their policies in support of refugees, returnees, internally displaced persons and migrants.
