Nansen International Office for Refugees (Office international Nansen pour les Réfugiés)





The Nansen International Office for Refugees ( French: Office International Nansen pour les Réfugiés ) was an organization established in 1930 by the League of Nations and named after Fridtjof Nansen, soon after his death, which was internationally in charge of refugees from war areas between 1930 and 1939. It is noted for developing the Nansen passport which allowed stateless people to travel between countries. It received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1938.
