Angelina Jolie has basked yet another impressive role for her many talents we know of, but this time as Contributing Editor for Time Magazine. Jolie’s role will require of her writing for the publication each month on topics which matters on displacement and human rights.
The Oscar winner has already cemented her editorial position with an article discussing ‘What we owe refugees in the world today’ published last Wednesday in honour of World Refugee Day. A smidgen of the article poses the questions, “Why then has the word refugee acquired such negative connotations in our times? Why are politicians being elected on promises to shut borders and turn back refugees?” The piece will appear in Time Magazine’s July 1 issue.
Jolie has always been an advocate for refugees all over the world. In 2018, where she was appointed guest editor for Radio 4’s Today programme, as part of a Christmas special. Jolie invited guests to discuss the current refugee crisis and present possible solutions to violence against women in war zones.
The ‘Salt’ actress has over the years being involved in 60 filed missions to refugee camps including countries Bangladesh, Columbia and Peru. She has an 18-year working experience with the UN Refugee Agency and has since the last 7 years played Special Envoy to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
