UNHCR role for Prof Gillian Triggs

Delighted that @GillianTriggs has been appointed Assistant High Commissioner for @Refugees for protection: she will bring to #UNHCR substantial legal expertise, knowledge and experience of refugee issues and a passion for human rights. “There are 71 million displaced people and refugees around the world and we have some very significant protection obligations in our region.” #AustraliaForUNHCR
