裘莉自2001年開始擔任聯合國難民署親善大使,曾到過全球各個衝突戰亂地區,包括敘利亞、葉門、阿富汗和緬甸等,進行過60次實地訪問,2011年起擔任聯合國難民署高級專員特使與愛心大使,但過去一年裡,裘莉經常透過媒體評論提出對聯合國的失望以及世界大國和全球援助機構缺乏有意義的行動。

 

数百万人逃离委内瑞拉时,安吉丽娜朱莉呼吁领导力和人性。2019年6月18日安吉丽对哥伦比亚进行为期两天的访问,以联合国难民署特使身份会见了难民、回返者和政府官员。她说,在当今世界 “我们比以往任何时候都更需要这种人性,以及那些不怕承担责任和展现领导才能的人的理性思考。” “这关乎数百万委内瑞拉人的生死存亡。”

 

这是安吉丽娜朱莉自 2001 年以来在联合国难民署执行的第 65 次任务。

 

裘莉在6月世界難民日為時代雜誌撰寫的一篇文章中寫道,「由於聯合國的建立方式,它傾向於強國利益和發言權,而以犧牲那些遭受衝突和迫害最深的人為代價,他們的權利和生活沒有得到平等對待。」

 

聯合國難民署的高級專員格蘭蒂(Filippo Grandi)公開表示,長期以來,裘莉一直是聯合國難民署重要的人道主義合作夥伴,非常感謝裘莉並支持她的決定。

 

 

Joint Statement by UNHCR and Angelina Jolie

 

UNHCR                              2022-12-16

 

After more than 20 years of dedicated and committed work with the UN Refugee Agency advocating for the rights and protection of forcibly displaced people around the world, Angelina Jolie is moving on from her role as UNHCR’s Special Envoy to engage on a broader set of humanitarian and human rights issues.

 

One of the most influential proponents of refugee rights, Ms. Jolie will continue to work to build a more equal, just and inclusive international system. At a time when the world is facing complex, multi-faceted, and interconnected crises, she plans to engage with a wider range of actors on a broader set of humanitarian issues as well as work more directly with local organizations. Her portfolio will continue to include refugees and issues of forced displacement.

 

UNHCR has worked with Ms. Jolie since 2001, and in 2012, she was appointed Special Envoy. In this critical role, she has used her powerful voice to build awareness and support for refugees and to call for urgent action and solutions for people forced to flee. Over the past 21 years, Ms. Jolie has worked tirelessly, carrying out more than 60 field missions to bear witness to stories of suffering as well as hope and resilience. Most recently, she travelled with UNHCR to Yemen and Burkina Faso to meet displaced people enduring two of the most underfunded and under-reported emergencies in the world.

 

“Angelina Jolie has been an important humanitarian partner of UNHCR for very long. We are grateful for her decades of service, her commitment, and the difference she has made for refugees and people forced to flee. After a long and successful time with UNHCR, I appreciate her desire to shift her engagement and support her decision. I know the refugee cause will remain close to her heart, and I am certain she will bring the same passion and attention to a wider humanitarian portfolio. I look forward to our continued friendship,” said UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi.

 

Ms. Jolie said: “I am grateful for the privilege and opportunity I have had to work with so many outstanding and dedicated UNHCR field officers and other colleagues doing lifesaving work globally, and to serve as Special Envoy. I will continue to do everything in my power in the years to come to support refugees and other displaced people. After 20 years working within the UN system I feel it is time for me to work differently, engaging directly with refugees and local organizations, and supporting their advocacy for solutions”.
