Better Angels Podcast
Fillipo Grandi, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, talks to Sarah Brown about the challenges faced by refugees and the importance of voting in these uncertain times.
Filippo Grandi, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, speaks with Sarah Brown about the need for young people to vote – and to vote well – if they want to make a difference to people’s lives.
In the inaugural episode of this Better Angels podcast series, he argues that voting is “the most basic and fundamental form of engagement” in democratic countries.
He also discusses the education crisis facing millions of child refugees around the world – a crisis which has been exacerbated by Covid-19.
Calling for greater investment in the education of young refugees, he says that “education is as important for refugees as it is for anyone”.
