News: EXCOM 2016 Wrap-up

The 67th session of UNHCR's Executive Committee ended on 7 October 2016. Here is the High Commissioner's closing statement and a draft report of the session. Note that Conclusions on International Protection were adopted once again, after a two-year absence. One is on "international cooperation from a protection and solutions perspective" and the other is on "youth." Documents and statements can be accessed on the "2016 Executive Committee session" page.
