United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees (UNHCR): Beginner General Assembly

This committee is designed for delegates who have never done Model UN before.


The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is a timelessly important UN body dedicated to the protection and the safe displacement of refugees worldwide. The UNHCR has navigated the world through wars and disasters, bringing forth immediate safety for the human lives that are in danger.

Today, refugees and asylum-seekers worldwide hope to protect their fundamental rights, which is what the UNHCR aims to provide. In this beginner general assembly, delegates will expect a classic yet intriguing discussion about possible topics, many of which are extremely relevant today.

From the refugee crises due to wars, to disaster control, to the balance between open borders and sovereignty, this committee aims to reach an efficient and ethical understanding of the reality of refugees.
