United States Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services

The Resource Information Center (RIC) was established to meet the information needs of the Asylum Officer and Immigration Officer Corps in the USA and overseas by providing credible and objective information on conditions in the countries of origin of asylum and refugee applicants. To meet this need, the RIC obtains information from reputable human rights monitors, government agencies, international organizations, non-governmental organizations, academia and the media. The RIC then compiles this information in a variety of publications that are distributed to the Officer Corps. The RIC is a Branch of the Asylum Division in the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services (US Department of Homeland Security).

This database includes RIC Profiles, Perspectives, Alerts, Question and Answer Papers (classified as "Country Reports") and RIC Query Responses (classified as "Responses to Information Requests"). Website: uscis.gov/graphics/services/asylum/ric/
