World Refugee Day 2002: Denmark

World Refugee Day 2002: Denmark

20 June 2002

Kids play in a neighbourhood populated mostly by Iraqi refugees. Because refugees are not allowed to work in Syria, children often must take informal jobs to help support their families.

In co-operation with the Danish Centre for Human Rights, UNHCR launched the Danish version of the UNHCR Handbook on Procedures and Criteria for Determining Refugee Status under the 1951 Convention and the 1967 Protocol relating to the Status of Refugees.

A seminar about refugee women was held on 24 May by the Danish Red Cross, with the support of UNHCR.
