Angelina Jolie considers new role with UN agency

2011-10-04 14:31

Angelina Jolie says she’s considering taking on a new and expanded role with the UN refugee agency for which she already serves as goodwill ambassador.

The actress told reporters today that she and the agency were still studying their options and working out the details, but haven’t settled on anything because they wanted to get it right.

Jolie stopped by the UN’s European headquarters to highlight the plight of refugees globally in an address to the agency’s executive committee.

She called refugees “the most vulnerable people in the world, and they are also the most resilient people”.

Yesterday, she was in Geneva to be recognised for her work and honour a Yemeni aid group, the Society for Humanitarian Solidarity, at an awards ceremony.
