On 18-19 January 2016, some 80 leaders of governments, UN agencies, faith-related as well as non-religious civil society organizations from countries affected by the current refugee crisis in Europe, Middle East, and Africa met at a conference hosted by the World Council of Churches (WCC) in partnership with the United Nations Childrenâ€™s Fund (UNICEF), the United Nations Fund for Population (UNFPA), and the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) to discern how they can proactively influence and shape coordinated collective practical responses.
The opening keynote was delivered by the German Minister of the Interior, Dr Thomas de MaiziÃ¨re, with responses by UNHCR Assistant High Commissioner for Protection Volker TÃ¼rk, Greek Ambassador to UN H.E. Mr Alexandros Alexandris, and Archbishop Dr Antje JackelÃ©n of the Church of Sweden.
