World Refugee Day
On 20 June, UNHCR salutes the indomitable spirit and courage of the world's
refugees, giving them the encouragement, support and respect they deserve.
After paying tribute to refugee youth last year, we continue to extend our
respect to refugees on this special day by focusing on the search for, and
implementation of, durable solutions to their plight. This year's theme, "A
place to call home: Rebuilding lives in safety and dignity", will draw attention
to the challenges and hopes that accompany refugees in their search for a new
home through voluntary repatriation, local integration or resettlement.
