She has however been a UN goodwill ambassador since 2001, and as such made 40 visits around the world in the past decade.The new post will see the Oscar -winning actress perform a more diplomatic role."She is expected to focus on large-scale crises resulting in the mass displacement of people, to undertake advocacy and represent UNHCR and Guterres at the diplomatic level, engaging with relevant interlocutors on global displacement issues," UNHCR spokesman Adrian Edwards had said last week.
