After more than 10 years in office, António Guterres stepped down as the UN's High Commissioner for Refugees this past week.

The new head of the agency is Filippo Grandi, who has arrived at UNHCR’s headquarters in Geneva.

Just before his departure, Mr Gutteres sat down with his chief Spokesperson, Melissa Fleming and reflected on one of the biggest challenges of his tenure, this past year’s refugee crisis.
