BACKGROUND:
World Refugee Day has been marked on June 20 ever since the UN General Assembly adopted resolution 55/76 in December 2000 where it noted that 2001 marked the 50th anniversary of the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, and that the Organization of African Unity (OAU) had agreed to have International Refugee Day coincide with Africa Refugee Day on June 20.
