DRC Geneva Representation

 
 

As home to the Geneva Convention and several UN headquarters, intergovernmental and nongovernmental organizations, Geneva is popularly known as the humanitarian capital of the world, and with the establishment of the Representation Office in Geneva in 2013, DRC strengthened its representation and engagement in the international humanitarian policy forum.

The DRC Representation serves as an advocacy and policy-influencing hub that engages with UN agencies, member states to the UN as well as the INGO community in Geneva to influence policies in the area of forced displacement.

The Representation seeks to use DRC’s accumulated policy expertise, analytical capacity and wide-ranging operational base in over 35 field missions around the globe to add value to policy debates in Geneva.

Global Mixed Migration Secretariat

The Global Mixed Migration Secretariat (GMMS) was established in 2017 and is based within the DRC Representation Office in Geneva. DRC has been involved in research on mixed migration through regional research entities since 2011. With the establishment of GMMS, DRC now aims to use this accumulated knowledge in the regionsto address mixed migration at a global level through policy dialogue, further research and information dissemination.
