Event Description

With 2013 being European Year of Citizens, the central focus is on the human rights of citizens. The European Union has committed itself to building a Common European Asylum System based on the full and inclusive application of the 1951 UN Refugee Convention, for which the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has a supervisory responsibility. To promote UNHCR Ireland’s campaign, an information stand about its role and the work it carries out will be on display in the information centre.
