UNHCR's Refworld

Refworld is the leading source of information necessary for taking quality decisions on refugee status. Refworld contains a vast collection of reports relating to situations in countries of origin, policy documents and positions, and documents relating to international and national legal frameworks. The information has been carefully selected and compiled from UNHCR's global network of field offices, Governments, international, regional and non-governmental organizations, academic institutions and judicial bodies.

ReliefWeb has been the leading source for reliable and timely humanitarian information on global crises and disasters since 1996. It is a specialized digital service of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). It provides reliable disaster and crisis updates and analysis to humanitarians, so they can make informed decisions and plan effective assistance.
