We are a refugee-led initiative for inclusive, sustainable and effective refugee policy.
Why Does Amplifying Refugee Voices Matter?
Nothing about us without us
Refugees and diaspora are essential stakeholders for defining and implementing comprehensive and sustainable global refugee policy.
Too often these populations are brought into international discussions after policy has been defined. They are included as token victims of the crisis, not active agents of change or experts with personal and professional field experience.
Refugees must have a seat at the negotiating table if their interests are to be adequately addressed--and if decision-making processes are to promote resilience and sustainability.
Add your name to the #RefugeeDeclaration for effective and sustainable refugee policy to affirm that refugees have agency and to send a clear message to governments that refugees must be included in all decisions regarding their future.
We engage in a range of activities at the international, national, and local levels to improve the international community's response to large movements of refugees and migrants, as well as protracted refugee situations.
We draw from our first-hand and professional experience to ensure global refugee policy serves it's beneficiaries. We take our recommendations directly to policy makers to push for urgent action to address the refugee crises.
We foster a community of refugee-led groups and refugee leaders worldwide. We believe refugees have agency and are stronger when we work together.
We aim to ensure refugee self-representation in international media and events. We elevate positive narratives about refugees and migrants, celebrating their valuable contributions to their countries of origin and destination.
