The Club de Madrid on the Occassion of the World Refugee Day

June 20, 2011

The Club de Madrid Members delegation participating at the 100th International Labour Conference in Geneva, Prime Ministers Wim Kok and Abdulkarim Al-Eryani, as well as Presidents Osvaldo Hurtado and Olusegun Obasanjo, paid Club de Madrid Member and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Antonio Guterres, a courtesy visit. 

During this meeting PM Guterres engaged in deep discussion with our other Members on the refugee situation world- wide with particular focus on the situation in MENA and Europe. Both organizations expressed an interest in identifying a joint activity for 2012 to explore immigration policies and future trends.  Today, on the world refugee day, the Club of Madrid wishes to call attention to the important challenges that increasingly will have to be faced and the important democratic values on which any response has to be based.
