The paper urges states to ensure that the “global compacts” on refugees and migrants that will be negotiated at the summits reflect the following recommendations:
1. Wealthy states should commit to accepting their fair share of refugees, thereby contributing to the collective resettlement of at least 10% of all refugees globally.
2. All states should commit to provide significant safe and legal routes for people to seek refuge and claim asylum.
3. All states should commit to protect and empower displaced women and girls.
4. All states should allocate increased needs-based funding to support local communities and refugees in host countries in the global South.
5. All states should commit to take action on the root causes of displacement.
