Topic:  Ensuring Protection of Iraqi and Syrian Refugees in a post-ISIS reality

Chairs: Gunjan Nihalani and Benjamin Seifert


According to the UNHCR official website, the UNHCR “[strives] to ensure that everyone has the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another State, with the option to eventually return home, integrate or resettle. During times

of displacement, [the UNHCR provides] critical emergency assistance in the form of clean water, sanitation and healthcare, as well as shelter, blankets, household goods and sometimes food. [The UNHCR] also [arranges] transport and assistance packages for people who return home, and income-generating projects for those who resettle. ”
