As the @UN turns 75, the question of Palestine remains distressingly unresolved.
On #PalestineDay, let's renew our commitment to the Palestinian people in their quest to achieve their rights and build a future of peace, dignity, justice and security.
Violence against women & girls is rooted in unequal gender power relations, structural inequality & discrimination.
Addressing the issue requires listening to the voices of those affected and prioritizing women’s leadership in finding solutions. #16Days
Violence against women & girls is a global emergency requiring urgent action at all levels, in all spaces & by all people.
On Wednesday's International Day to End Violence against Women I reiterate my appeal to end this shadow pandemic once & for all.
Carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere hit a new record in 2019 and are expected to keep rising, despite #COVID19 lockdown.
Every country, city, financial institution & company should adopt plans for reaching net zero emissions by 2050.
Afghan women are playing a central role in creating peaceful communities with more opportunities for all.
It is essential that the peace process in Afghanistan is inclusive and that women are allowed to contribute in a meaningful way to its outcome.
I'm deeply concerned about continued high levels of violence in Afghanistan, particularly recent attacks on civilians, including students.
I call for the redoubling of efforts towards an immediate, unconditional ceasefire to save lives & prevent the further spread of #COVID19.
The @UN General Assembly has re-elected me High Commissioner for Refugees until 30 June 2023.
I am humbled, and grateful to Secretary-General @antonioguterres for his support.
My UNHCR colleagues and I will keep working hard with refugees, displaced, stateless people worldwide.
Congratulations to @FilippoGrandi on your re-election as High Commissioner for @Refugees. I look forward to continue working together in support of the millions of people uprooted by war and persecution.
I am very pleased that the most recent Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo is over.
Having seen the resilience of survivors & health workers there last year, I know that the same spirit of solidarity that led to this success must guide #COVID19 global efforts.
We must ensure that #COVID19 vaccines are treated as a global public good — a people’s vaccine accessible and affordable to everyone, everywhere.
This is not a “do-good” exercise, it is the only way to stop the pandemic dead in its tracks.
Solidarity is survival.
