Refugee Week

On the occasion of World Refugee Day (20 June), the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) works to commemorate the strength, courage and perseverance of millions of refugees and raise awareness on their issues. Behind this humanitarian crisis, and beyond the statistics, there are individual lives and stories to be told.

It is what the Institut français and partners aims to underline with its series of debates and screenings presented as part of Refugee Week. This programme, organised with NGOs and associations also pays tribute to the commitment of the women and men – activists, students, artists or citizens – who, in the context of a global pandemic, help refugees rebuild a decent life in our societies.
