GRSI High Level Roundtable on Community Sponsorship

Jul 24, 2020

On July 9, 2020 the Global Refugee Sponsorship Initiative (GRSI) hosted a high level roundtable on community sponsorship's role in the resumption of resettlement & complementary pathways.


This virtual dialogue discusses the resumption of third-country protection – and how community sponsorship can support and sustain this re-opening – in a COVID-19 landscape. The roundtable includes some very special guest speakers including EU Commissioner Ylva Johannson; Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada Marco Mendicino; UNHCR’s Assistant High Commissioner for Protection Gillian Triggs; Under-Secretary of the Vatican’s Migrants and Refugees Section Cardinal Michael Czerny and GRSI Founding Partner and President of The Giustra Foundation, Frank Giustra.
