News from the Field

© UNHCR/P.Wiggers

UNHCR has a global network of information officers who report daily on the agency's varied activities on behalf of uprooted people around the world. This information is released locally to the media, or sent to Geneva headquarters for editing before it is released in the form of press releases, web stories or by the UNHCR spokesperson at twice-weekly briefings at the Palais des Nations, the UN's European headquarters. UNHCR's presence in more than 125 countries, including in some of the most remote and difficult places on Earth, gives it access to news and information that are not available from anyone else.
