The Government has three priorities for the UNGA Summit on Refugees and Migrants:

- tackling forced displacement, including through conflict prevention and reduction, and safeguarding human rights and protecting civilians

- shared global responsibility for the protection of refugees, as well as for regular, safe, and orderly migration and control of irregular migration; and

- encouraging controlled, regular migration that has significant development benefits.

We are finalising details of the UK delegation, including plans for ministerial attendance.
