Accountability for refugee protection and solutions in a ‘whole of society approach’

On 4th December, the Danish Refugee Council and the Permanent Mission to Denmark to the UN hosted
an event in Geneva to reflect on the implications of the supposed ‘system change’ emanating from the
CRRF. The event was attended by 35 participants from NGOs, UNHCR, ICRC and members state missions
in Geneva. DRC Staff from East Africa, the Middle East, and global programmes shared experience and
thoughts on three key issues relevant for the Global Compact on Refugees and its Programme of Action,
and for the continued roll-out of the CRRF: 1) What does it take to create space for refugees and host
communities in comprehensive, multi-stakeholder responses? 2) Will a multi-stakeholder response
dilute or enforce accountability for refugee protection and solutions? 3) What new role will NGOs have
in a reformed response modality?
