Working with the Media

UNHCR maintains a network of media officers around the globe who are available around the clock to answer queries on every aspect of UNHCR's operations and policies. Information officers in Geneva, including the chief spokesperson, are ready to provide an overview of UNHCR activities or details reported from the field: other media officers can be contacted directly in the field to provide on-the-spot details or to assist journalists in carrying out their own reporting. Our Geneva-based video and photo units provide footage and photographs free of charge to the media.
