The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees [UNHCR] was established on December 14, 1950 by the United Nations General Assembly. The agency is mandated to lead and co-ordinate international action to protect refugees and resolve refugee problems worldwide. Its primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees.
Trends in Displacement Protection and Solutions documents over 20 million people of concern to UNHCR. The U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants defends the rights of all uprooted people regardless of their nationality, race, religion, ideology, or social group.
