Women's Refugee Commission

The Women's Refugee Commission improves the lives and protects the rights of women, children and youth displaced by conflict and crisis. They research their needs, identify solutions and advocate for programs and policies to strengthen their resilience and drive change in humanitarian practice. Since their founding in 1989, the WRC has been a leading expert on the needs of refugee women and children, and the policies that can protect and empower them. Their vision is a world in which refugee and internally displaced women, children and youth: are safe, healthy and self-reliant; have their human rights respected and protected; and inform and drive their own solutions and development.
