Together Initiative

TOGETHER is a global initiative that aims to change negative perceptions and attitudes towards refugees and migrants, and to strengthen the social contract between host countries and communities, and refugees and migrants. The core values of the United Nations and the determination to “leave no one behind” which is at the heart of the Development agenda are at the centre of TOGETHER.

All 193 Member States of the United Nations unanimously welcomed the TOGETHER initiative and committed to implementing it, when they met at the Summit for Refugees and Migrants on 19 September 2016. TOGETHER will run until the second half of 2018, when Member States are expected to adopt two Global Compacts on Refugees and Migrants.
