UNHCR's support organization in France, Association française de soutien à l'UNHCR, published a special edition of its newsletter, Action réfugiés, dedicated to World Refugee Day theme, "A Place to Call Home: Rebuilding Lives in Safety and Dignity".

A special feature about World Refugee Day was on the Association's website.
