Resettling 10 percent of Syrian refugees

The commitment needed at the Geneva conference

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is organizing a ‘Highlevel meeting on global responsibility sharing through pathways for admission of Syrian refugees’, which will be opened by the United Nations Secretary-General in Geneva on 30 March 2016.

Oxfam is calling for the states attending the Geneva conference to collectively commit to offer a safe haven through resettlement or other forms of humanitarian admission to at least 10 percent of the refugee population – the equivalent of 481,220 people – by the end of 2016.
