Report of 2017 Annual Tripartite Consultations on Resettlement

Organised by UNHCR, the Government of New Zealand and NZ Red Cross, the 2017 ATCR took place on 12-14 June and brought together representatives of 32 nations involved in resettlement. The 2017 ATCR explored ways of increasing and broadening resettlement as a durable solution for refugees, in line with commitments outlined in the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants. Delegates discussed strategies to involve new states in resettlement, build community-based sponsorship, increase the engagement of the private sector, introduce complementary pathways to traditional resettlement programs, and broaden resettlement criteria.
