Decision on Informal Consultations on Protection Issues
The Executive Committee,
Affirms that the informal consultations on measures to ensure international protection for all who need it have proved to be a valuable forum for constructive discussion of complex protection issues in an open manner; and requests UNHCR, in consultation with States, to continue to organize from time to time, within the limits of available resources, and with broadly based participation, informal expert consultations on protection issues of current concern.
