GENEVA (CBS4) — Angelina Jolie says she’s considering taking on a new and expanded role with the U.N. refugee agency for which she already serves as goodwill ambassador.

The actress told reporters Tuesday that she and the agency are still studying their options and working out the details, but haven’t settled on anything because they want to get it right.

Jolie stopped by the U.N.’s European headquarters to highlight the plight of refugees globally in an address to the agency’s executive committee.

She called refugees “the most vulnerable people in the world, and they are also the most resilient people.”

On Monday, she was in Geneva to be recognized for her work and honor a Yemeni aid group, the Society for Humanitarian Solidarity, at an awards ceremony.
