Topic 1: Marginalized communities position on migration


By upholding the values of diplomacy and international collaboration, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) plays a crucial role in tackling migration issues within marginalized communities. The UNHCR is responsible with defending the rights and welfare of people who have been forcibly displaced, such as refugees, asylum seekers, and stateless people, who frequently feel vulnerable because of their disadvantaged status. When it comes to addressing the needs of marginalized groups impacted by migration, UNHCR functions as a neutral and impartial institution that collaborates with governments, regional organizations, and other stakeholders. The organization’s main goals are to protect and help those who have been forcefully displaced while also ensuring that their human rights are preserved and respected throughout the course of their migration.
