United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR).

One of the highest-profile programmes of the United Nations is the UNHCR. Mandated with protecting and supporting refugees at the request of either an individual government or the UN itself; the United Nations High Commission for Refugees assists in the processes of voluntary repatriation, integration, and third country resettlement. The work of the UNHCR has been considered in many quarters as significantly impactful, which is reflected by the fact that the programme has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize twice.
