For the past 35 years Islamic Relief has been supporting refugees, internally displaced people, asylum seekers and returnees – and making sure decision makers hear their voices. In April 2019 we joined the call for states, communities and displaced people to be included on a high-level panel on protection and assistance for internally displaced people. In December, we took part in the first Global Refugee Forum. Held in Geneva, it was an opportunity to translate the principle of international responsibility-sharing of the refugee crisis into more concrete action.
