Global Youth Advisory Council 2019 Annual Report


The UN High Commissioner for Refugees appointed the first Global Youth Advisory Council (GYAC) in December 2017 in order to create a sustainable mechanism to facilitate the engagement of young people of concern in policy and practice and to further advance UNHCR’s work with and for youth. The GYAC serves as a consultative group that advocates on issues relating to the protection and development of young people who are refugees, internally displaced or stateless and their communities. The GYAC works with refugees, displaced persons and the host community in countries of asylum and in countries of resettlement to bring a youth perspective on a broad range of issues into the work of UNHCR at-all levels.
