World Refugee Day 2003: Germany

World Refugee Day 2003: Germany

20 June 2003

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.

UNHCR hosted the third Berlin Symposium on Refugee Protection, targeting NGOs, judges and civil servants. Speeches by the Minister of Interior and UNHCR Representative in Germany were broadcast on national television.

Educational materials on refugee youth were distributed to some 200 teachers in Berlin, where two seminars for teachers were held.
