The Geneva Convention, born in 1951, was drawn up in a socio-political context very different from that of today. The world has changed in the last 70 years, but the Convention remains key in protecting people fleeing persecution.

The context has changed, but the protection of refugees remains a fundamental right and a shared responsibility.
