The World Refugee Council (WRC) was created to build on the momentum generated by UN meetings in New York in September 2016, which saw the unanimous adoption of the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants, and to develop bold approaches to transform the current refugee system, focusing on the issues of accountability, responsibility sharing and governance, and finance. The WRC offers this interim report, and other discussion and research papers, to raise awareness of these issues and to stimulate ideas for reform that will transform lives.

Reports include a range of publications prepared by the WRC Secretariat or multi-author teams for the World Refugee Council. These interim progress or final reports summarize and synthesize the main ideas, conclusions and recommendations emerging from the WRC's work as it pursues its mandate.
