The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) was created in 1950 in order to help the millions of European refugees after World War II.  UNHCR has continued to assist refugees around the world since its founding.  At the start of the 21st century, the bulk of its work was seen in the refugee crises in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.  The UNHCR has expanded the scope of its work to now include stateless people and not just refugees.  In some parts of the world, the work of the UNHCR is complimented by local NGOs.

Shmuel Snyder

Chair

Hi, my name is Shmuel. I moved to Israel about three years ago from Toronto, Canada. I am currently studying towards a BA in Chemistry at Bar Ilan University. I began my MUN journey at the beginning of last year and have been privileged to have experienced conferences as a delegate, Academic Advisor and as a Vice Chair. While zoom is not optimal and we wish we could have everyone in person, we will make this conference an awesome experience, and we look forward to an engaging debate and a fun time. If you have any questions feel free to reach out.
