Angelina Jolie Named Special Envoy for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)

My regular readers probably know that Angelina Jolie is really not one of my favorite celebrities.  She does have high visibility in the world and therefore, whatever she does becomes news and gets attention.

That’s a good thing for the U.N. and the highlight it needs to raise awareness about the displacement of people in the world.  After serving for more than 10 years as an ambassador, this position moves Angelina to a higher level who will deal with governments and diplomats as well.

If one can bring focus on an issue, and that person is Angelina Jolie, so be it.  I guess a congratulations is well-deserved.
