UN High Commissioner for Refugees at uOttawa

High Commissionner for Refugees at uOttawa | Haut Commissariat pour les réfugiés à uOttawa

Last March 21, Mr. Filippo Grandi, UN High Commissionner for Refugee, was at the University of Ottawa to participate in a public forum on the theme “The Refugee Crisis – Local Responses to a Global Problem".

Mr. Grandi is in charge of the UN agency tasked to protect refugees worldwide. The discussion focused on the many challenges he faces in fulfilling that mandate, and how the people of Ottawa are responding to the global refugee crisis.

The Human Rights Research and Education Centre was pleased to partner with Refugee 613, UNHCR Canada and CIPS to organize this event.
