DIALOGUE WITH REFUGEES AND REFUGEE RIGHTS ADVOCATES

On December 28th, 2020, Asia Culture and Art Organization (aka Asia Culture House) and the United Nations in Afghanistan organized virtual dialogue with refugees and refugee rights advocates. 5 Participants discussed the refugee crisis, the future and what it holds, what we need to do now to make the world is a better place to live, and what role the United Nations can play.

The dialogue was part of a series of global consultations that the United Nations’ Secretary-General launched for its 75th anniversary. We thank the following panelists for their unique insights:

  • Sultan Ali Javid, Director of Policy and Planning, Ministry of Refugees and Repatriation, Government of Afghanistan,
  • Saleh Sepaz, Founder of Parastoo Theatre, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia,
  • Shuaib Lalee, Founder of Afghanistan People Advocacy Watch, London, United Kingdom,
  • Abdul Ghafoor, Founder and Director of Afghanistan Migrants and Support Organization, Kabul, Afghanistan,
  • Abbas Arifi, Journalist and survey contributor with the Danish Refugee Council, Afghanistan,
  • Khodadad Shoayb, Fulbright Alumnus, Vancouver, Canada.
