From May 2 to 3, 2012, the UN refugee agency and the government of Switzerland are co-hosting an international conference in Geneva on the Afghan refugee situation. The conference, on the solutions strategy for Afghan refugees, will seek to help Afghan refugees and improve their reintegration in Afghanistan.
Since 2002, UNHCR has assisted nearly four million Afghan refugees to return home from Pakistan. Recently, Ahmed Shafiq made the journey with his family after 15 years as a refugee. This is his story.
