The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), also known as The UN Refugee Agency, was founded in 1950 with the goal of protecting the rights and livelihood of displaced persons around the world. The UNHCR works also to protect those being repatriated following displacement or in helping refugees attain asylum status in some countries. By working with organizations and governments, the UNHCR has helped millions of people who had found themselves forced out of their home country after being persecuted for differences in race, religion, political opinions, and more. In the past, the UNHCR has helped vulnerable populations by providing them access to shelter, healthcare services, and education. The goal is not only to help refugees in the present but also to help build strong and stable futures. This committee’s topics will explore topics that must be acknowledged in order to protect displaced persons. The first topic, Human Trafficking, encourages delegates to debate and present ideas which would help curb the occurrence of this crime. The second topic, Stigma and Stereotypes Surrounding Displaced Persons, urges delegates to discuss the negative effects that cultural stigmas have on refugees who are trying to join a, most likely, foreign society.
