Overview

News

UNHCR has a global network of information officers and others who report daily on the agency's varied activities on behalf of uprooted people around the world. This information is released locally to media and others. UNHCR's presence in more than 110 countries, including in some of the most remote and difficult places on Earth, gives it access to news and information that are not available from anyone else. Our global communications network strives to provide timely, accurate and newsworthy information on all of the UNHCR's activities to generate awareness of and support for the refugee cause. First-hand reports, feature stories and graphics from distant field operations as well as from Geneva headquarters and world capitals are posted daily on the main UNHCR website, making it an authoritative source on some of the biggest news events of the day.

On the web pages of the UNHCR Ireland web site, we hope to update you not only on international stories, but also local stories dealing with asylum in Ireland.
