UNHCR, the UN refugee agency, is mandated to lead and coordinate international action to protect and assist displaced people around the world and to help find lasting solutions for them. Set up with modest goals in 1950, UNHCR has since helped tens of millions of people, winning two Nobel Peace Prizes along the way for its vital humanitarian work. For those forced to flee their homes to escape war or persecution, the UN refugee agency is often the last hope for a return to a normal life. Today a staff of over 8,000 are working in 126 countries, as the number of displaced people worldwide – 51 million – is at the highest level since the second World War. ----- United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees leads and coordinates international actions to protect refugees and resolve refugee problems worldwide. The organization’s primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees. It strives to ensure that everyone can exercise the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another State with the option to return home voluntarily, integrate locally, or resettle in a third country. It also has a mandate to help stateless people. In more than six decades, the agency has helped tens of millions of people restart their lives. Today, a staff of more than 8,600 people in more than 125 countries continues to help over 33.9 million people. United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees was established on December 14, 1950 by the United Nations General Assembly. It is based in Geneva, Switzerland.
