National Activity Plan 2006: France

20 June 2006

UNHCR staff register refugees at the Douma registration center on the outskirts of Damascus. Registering with UNHCR ensures that the most vulnerable refugees receive aid.

  • To fight against intolerance and to advocate for better integration, students at Sciences Po Paris, have this year, chosen the theme of Burundian refugees in Tanzania. A classroom in France and one in Tanzania have begun to work on the subject after our office in Tanzania put them in touch with each other. Sciences Po students have also concluded a partnership with CNDP (National centre of pedagogical documentation) in order to help on technical matters for creating a CD Rom, which will later form the basis for a new Internet site.
  • For the second year, ESSEC students have decided to enter a partnership with UNHCR for the WRD. This year, the event will take place at Domaine de Villarceau near Choisy and will be organized for 8-10 years old pupils. They will participate at sports and games and they will conclude their visit with an UNHCR exhibition and presentation.
  • A group of students has decided this year to go ahead in a partnership with UNHCR and organize at CNAM (Museum and College of Arts and Crafts) an exhibition and various events concerning DRC refugees in France.
  • In collaboration with SSAE (Social Service to Help Foreigners) and France Culture, a conference will be held in Paris with French and European specialists about asylum and migrations in the European-Mediterranean region.
