United Nations, September 14 2017

UN Secretary-General António Guterres today (14 Sep) met with the Special Envoy of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and world-renowned actor, Angelina Jolie, to discuss global refugee crisis and other humanitarian crisis in Syria, Myanmar, Bangladesh and other places.

Angelina Jolie has represented UNHCR as a Goodwill Ambassador from 2001-2012, carrying out over 50 field missions and becoming an influential advocate on refugee and displacement matters. She was appointed Special Envoy in April 2012, an expanded role that allows her to focus on major crises that result in mass population displacements, undertaking advocacy and representing the High Commissioner for Refugees at the diplomatic level.
