A Civil Society's response to the UN Secretary-General's report on the World Humanitarian Summit

The highly important World Humanitarian Summit is taking place in Istanbul 23 and 24 May. Heads and senior leaders of states, international agencies and civil society organisations from around the world will be gathering to formalise commitments that they have worked on in a two-year process launched by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon (the SG). Recently, the SG issued his report for the Summit. Among other things, his report strongly emphasises “core responsibility” for improving humanitarian action regarding migrants, refugees and displaced persons, with particular attention to women and children.
ivil society colleagues in the NGO Committee on Migration in New York have prepared a 3-page statement with analysis and recommendations specifically on those parts of the Secretary-General’s report.
