UNHCR provides guidance on refugee and asylum law and policy.
In the UK, UNHCR provides guidance on refugee and asylum law and policy to the UK government, legal practitioners, non-governmental organisations and many others. Where appropriate UNHCR takes up cases and raises issues of concern with our counterparts in the UK government. We intervene in court proceedings, which are precedent-setting for the international protection of refugees. We also provide training on a range of issues to those working with asylum-seekers and refugees.
