Comments on National Legislation

The international obligations of States regarding refugees and non-refugee stateless persons as well as the prevention and reduction of statelessness need to be translated into national laws in order to ensure their effective implementation. UNHCR reviews and comments on national legislation in order to assist States in ensuring that national legislation is in accordance with international standards related to refugee law and statelessness.

UNHCR has promulgated guidelines (Internal link) and a checklist (Internal link) to assist those reviewing and commenting on national legislation related to refugees and non-refugee stateless persons. These should be consulted by UNHCR staff and others involved in reviewing and commenting on national legislation.
