High Commissioner's Dialogue

Since the first gathering, participants have addressed protracted refugee situations, durable solutions and international migration, challenges for people of concern in urban settings, and protection gaps and responses in the existing international protection framework for forcibly displaced and stateless people.

The Dialogue on Protection Challenges is not structured to elicit formal or agreed outcomes, but rather provides a unique forum for a free and open exchange of views between states, non-governmental and intergovernmental organizations, the academic and research community, and other stakeholders. At the close of the meeting, the High Commissioner delivers a summary of the discussions and highlights elements for follow up.
