The 2023 Global Refugee Forum

By USCRI November 21, 2023

From December 13 to 15, the Global Refugee Forum (GRF) will be held in Geneva, Switzerland. It is the largest international gathering on refugees and forcibly displaced persons, bringing together national governments, refugees, local authorities, international organizations, civil society, and members of the private sector. This is only the second GRF ever hosted. The first GRF convened in December 2019, although the COVID-19 pandemic quickly stunted progress in key areas, such as refugee education.

This policy brief discusses the origins of the GRF through the Global Compact for Refugees and the pledge process of the GRF. It also highlights several notable pledges or multistakeholder pledges for the upcoming GRF and makes recommendations to maximize the impact of this year’s GRF.
