Filippo Grandi, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees: How, in a world of modern nation states, shared prosperity, and boundless capabilities can refugees and migrants on the move today find themselves exposed to kidnapping for ransom, imprisonment and torture? What should shape our response to those uprooted and on the move in ‘mixed’ migratory flows? And what is the role of international cooperation and the modern system of international refugee protection?

Drawing on more than 30 years of experience in refugee and international affairs, UN Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi will reflect on these questions, and on the intersection between refugee movements and the broader dynamics of human mobility and migration today.
