Policy Documents

The policy collection consists of mainly UNHCR policy documents, although contributions from other sources are continually added to the collection. Policy information is useful to provide guidance to decision makers. The majority of the documents in the collection cover asylum policy on countries, specific situations or thematic/subject matter based issues.
