World leaders must seize the opportunity at a conference on the future of Libya this week to make continued commitments to addressing the humanitarian needs of a population who have not known peace for more than a decade, four aid groups working in Libya said today.
Comments from Charlotte Slente, Secretary General, the Danish Refugee Council, on new global displacement figures from UNHCR, showing 82.4 million displaced persons globally:
The Danish Refugee Council strongly condemns the killing of ten deminers working in HALO Trust in Afghanistan’s Baghlan province on 8 June, 2021.
The Danish parliament has passed a bill, opening the possibility to transfer asylum seekers and refugees to a third country – and hence externalize the Danish asylum procedure. The Danish Refugee Council find this idea irresponsible and lacking in solidarity.
