After a decade of promoting refugee causes around the world, Angelina Jolie herself has been promoted.

The United Nations refugee agency has elevated the Hollywood star from being a goodwill ambassador to a special envoy.

Jolie has jetted the world on behalf of the organization over the past ten years, making high-profile visits to refugee camps in Iraq, Haiti and Pakistan, among other places.

Her new position will focus on the complex crises that result in the mass displacement of people, such as in Afghanistan and Somalia.

In addition, on special occasions she will represent the UN’s High Commissioner for Refugees, Antonio Guterres.
