UN Global Compact on Refugees

I got up at 4:15 AM today to head to NYC for WEA meetings. Among other things, we will be considering WEA input into the draft U.N. Global Compact for Refugees that is trying to find a new way forward in responding to the global refugee crisis. Present UN and international responses and strategies were developed in the late 1940s and early 1950s in response to the refugee crisis created by WW2.

No one thinks present “solutions” are working. It’s time to look for 21st Century solutions. I thank God for having the privilege of participating in the process.
