As home to the Geneva Convention and several UN headquarters, intergovernmental and nongovernmental organisations, Geneva is popularly known as the humanitarian capital of the world, and with the establishment of the Representation Office in Geneva in 2013, the Danish Refugee Council (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 40 field missions around the globe to add value to policy debates in Geneva.

In addition, the Mixed Migration Centre (MMC), the Joint IDP Profiling Service (JIPS) and the Humanitarian to Humanitarian Network (H2H) are administratively hosted by the DRC Representation office in Geneva.
