The World Refugee & Migration Council Mourns the Passing of Honorary Chair Madeleine Albright

23 March 2022

“The World Refugee & Migration Council mourns the passing today of former US Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright. A refugee herself, she championed the protection of human rights for refugees and migrants around the world. As Honorary Chair of our Council and co-chair of our North and Central American Task Force on Migration, her wise counsel and constant support for women and girls and others displaced by conflict guided our efforts, which we will continue.”

— Lloyd Axworthy, Chair, World Refugee & Migration Council
