In 2019, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) hosted the Global Refugee Forum for the first time. Here, among others, government representatives, business leaders and civil society from all over the world gathered to find solutions to the global refugee situation. The Global Refugee Forum aimed, among other things, to follow up on the Global Compact on Refugees, which was adopted in December 2018 by the UN General Assembly.
