The role and profile of resettlement has strengthened considerably as it has come to play, more than ever, a crucial role in international efforts to assist refugees. UNHCR must be well positioned to respond to both an increase in states¿ demands, requiring new ways of doing business and to the interest of new state actors seeking to establish programs. It is particularly important that UNHCR is able to actively influence resettlement policy setting at the international and national level, to support states to grow capacity for resettlement, to respond to and monitor UNHCR activity against targets; and to maintain the integrity of its case processing systems.
The Deputy Director engages comprehensively with staff across the Division and all parts of UNHCR, in particular with the Bureau. Frequently, these contacts are made to discuss thematic and operational issues so as to further the development of operational or policy guidance.
External stakeholders include traditional as well as new and emerging resettlement countries and resettlement service providers and other relevant stakeholders for the identification, development and promotion of resettlement and complementary pathways including, States, host governments, local authorities, NGOs, refugees and diaspora organizations, international organizations, academics and the private sector.
The Deputy Director is responsible for the work of the Resettlement Service which is structured in cross-cutting small teams that cover liaison with operations by region and with individual resettlement states and states supporting other pathways, as well as activities to support the following objectives:

About the IAS:
Founded in 1988, the International AIDS Society (IAS) is the world’s largest association of HIV professionals, with members from more than 180 countries. IAS members work on all fronts of the global response to AIDS, and include researchers, clinicians, policy and programme planners and public health and community practitioners on the frontlines of the epidemic.
The IAS organizes the world’s two most prestigious HIV conferences, each convened biennially in alternating years. The International AIDS Conference is the largest conference on any global health or development issue, and provides a unique forum for the intersection of science and advocacy. The IAS Conference on HIV Science brings together a broad cross section of HIV professionals and features the latest HIV science, with a focus on implementation – moving scientific advances into practice.
In addition, the IAS programmes advocate for urgent action to reduce the global impact of HIV, including increased investment in HIV cure research; optimizing treatment and care for infants, children and adolescents with HIV in resource-limited settings; preventing and treating HIV-related co-infections; and expanding access to prevention, treatment and care for key populations at higher risk for HIV – such as men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, sex workers and transgender individuals – including protecting their human rights by combatting punitive laws and discriminatory policies.
More information on IAS can be found at www.iasociety.org.
