The Ceremony

The ceremony is organized by UNHCR in cooperation with the Government of Norway and the Norwegian Refugee Council, the State Council of the Republic and Canton of Geneva, the Administrative Council of the City of Geneva and the IKEA Foundation, to honour the outstanding achievements of individuals, groups and organizations who support those forced to flee.

Every year the ceremony brings together performers and speakers passionate about the refugee cause. 

In 2017, for the first time ever, the Ceremony was covered on Facebook Live.
