Court Interventions / Amicus Curiae

Interventions before courts by UNHCR and other organizations are an important tool through which protection standards can be developed and a consistent application of refugee law fostered. Interventions before courts may take different forms, depending on the national or supranational context, including formal amicus curiae briefs, advisory opinions or letters to the court or parties involved, as well as public statements. Interventions by UNHCR are carried out in the exercise of its supervisory function.

Refworld is the repository of all interventions made by UNHCR in judicial proceedings before national and regional courts. They are organised in reverse-chronological order and, where available, are linked to the court decision in the case(s) at hand once adopted.
