Limak Atlantis Deluxe Resort & Hotel • March 2-6, 2020
United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) was created in the aftermath of the Second World War as an international response to the rising number of refugees around the world. In 1954, after only four years of its foundation, UNHCR won the Nobel Peace Prize for its significant work in Europe.
The 70-year-old Nobel Peace Prize winner Commission is at the peak of its international importance today. As the world experiences the highest number of displacements recorded in history, UNHCR now has more than 16,803 personnel from 134 countries to work for sheltering, protecting, and maintaining the health of 16.1 million refugees under its mandate. Seeing its role become as essential as ever, UNHCR faces new and more complicated problems due to the intricate consequences of modern conflicts and climate change.
