The World Refugee Council is an independent group of global leaders and innovators aimed at advancing new solutions to the global refugee crisis. The Council will provide much-needed research and recommendations on structural reform, including how best to manage refugee movements; deploy emerging technologies for improved protection and solutions for refugees; promote innovative financing models; and identify opportunities for strengthening the international legal regime on refugees. It will develop a transformative agenda to help ensure that international cooperation for refugees is predictable, equitable and just.

The Centre for International Governance Innovation will coordinate the work of the Council, which is chaired by former Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs the Honourable Lloyd Axworthy.
