June 20 – World Refugee Day

On December 4, 2000, the UN General Assembly unanimously adopted the resolution 55/76, in which it noted that the fiftieth anniversary of the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees will be marked in 2001. Millions of refugees die, are subject to violence and become victims of terror every day. That is why “Even one refugee forced to flee, one refugee forced to return to danger is one too many” (UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon).
