The International Somali Awards in collaboration with SOAS Somali Society is pleased to host Ambassador Mohamed Abdi Affey, UNHCR’s Special Envoy on the Somali Refugee Situation.
Ambassador Affey holds extensive regional experience, notably through his previous function as the Special Envoy to Somalia for the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD). He also previously served as Kenya’s Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs and Kenya’s Ambassador to Somalia.
The UN has recognized that the path towards stability and prosperity in Somalia must include solutions for Somalis in exile throughout the region, and the Special Envoy supports UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, to maximize efforts in the search for solutions for Somali refugees and asylum seekers at national and regional levels.
As part of the International Somali Awards ‘Leadership and Choices’ post-ISA events, Ambassador Affey along with other esteemed panelists will present the challenges and opportunities regarding the Somali refugee situation. Join us for this engaging and dynamic evening of discussion with our respected guest.
