From the 24 – 28th October 2022 the Global Protection Cluster (GPC), its Strategic Advisory Group (SAG) and Areas of Responsibility (AoRs) organized the Global Protection Thematic Forum on Access that Protects.

This week-long series of twelve virtual events aimed to provide a platform through which key protection and access partners, field practitioners, donors, Member States, academics and many more came together to find better ways to shift behaviours, policies and practices in ways that can advance access that protects. It presented an opportunity to showcase frontline work and also hear from local voices.

This report summarizes the contributions from each session, including key recommendations and ways forward to advance Access that Protects.
