Private Sector Forum on Migration and Refugees at the 2016 Concordia Summit

Concordia, Columbia University’s Global Policy Initiative, the International Organization for Migration, and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, with the support of the Open Society Foundations and Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, will host a series of high-level interactive discussions on the private sector’s role and responsibility in addressing global migration challenges and the current refugee crisis. A curated gathering of 200 cross-sector leaders will join this invitation-only forum, which will culminate in a plenary session. This plenary session will issue a Call to Action to all 1,000+ expected Concordia Summit attendees on the need to combine efforts and partner across sectors to provide tangible solutions for forced migration.
