UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees)Container

Number of Delegates: 60

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees is an award winning (one Nobel Peace Price in 1954, one in 1981) UN agency mandated to lead and coordinate international action to protect refugees and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs). The main activities include the protection of refugees’ and IDP’s rights, emergency help through humanitarian action and durable assistance by supporting voluntary repatriation, local integration and resettlement. With currently almost 60 million forcibly displaced persons worldwide, this UN Agency has doubtlessly a vast responsibility.
