Briefing notes

Angelina Jolie's latest journals available online

7 October 2003

UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie today released two journals on her recent experiences with displaced people in Kosovo and Sri Lanka. The journals capture the hope and despair of the refugees, returnees and displaced people Ms. Jolie met while on mission to these post-conflict societies. Ms. Jolie has been active with UNHCR for the past two and a half years and was appointed Goodwill Ambassador by High Commissioner Ruud Lubbers in August 2001. To raise awareness and support for refugees, she has travelled with UNHCR to Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Balkans and the North Caucasus, and has also contributed generously to UNHCR programmes.
