DRC Geneva Representation
As home to the Geneva Convention and several UN headquarters, intergovernmental and nongovernmental organizations, Geneva is popularly known as the humanitarian capital of the world, and with the establishment of the Representation Office in Geneva in 2013, DRC strengthened its representation and engagement in the international humanitarian policy forum.
The DRC Representation serves as an advocacy and policy-influencing hub that engages with UN agencies, member states to the UN as well as the INGO community in Geneva to influence policies in the area of forced displacement.
The Representation seeks to use DRC’s accumulated policy expertise, analytical capacity and wide-ranging operational base in over 35 field missions around the globe to add value to policy debates in Geneva.
Global Mixed Migration Secretariat
The Mixed Migration Centre (MMC) was established in 2018. The Geneva office of the MMC is based within the DRC Representation office in Geneva. DRC has been involved in data collection, research, analysis and policy development on mixed migration through various regional research entities since 2011. With the Mixed Migration Centre, DRC brought these entities together under one umbrella with a continued strong regional presence in East Africa, West Africa, North Africa, the Middle East and Asia.
