Humanitarian Affairs, Refugees

UNHCR's Refworld 
(United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees)

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 (United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs)

ReliefWeb is your source for timely, reliable and relevant humanitarian information and analysis.
Our goal is to help you make sense of humanitarian crises worldwide. To do this, we scan the websites of international and non-governmental organizations, governments, research institutions and the media for news, reports, press releases, appeals, policy documents, analysis and maps related to humanitarian emergencies worldwide. We then ensure the most relevant content is available on ReliefWeb, or delivered through your preferred channel (RSS, e-mail, Twitter or Facebook).
We also produce maps and infographics to illustrate and explain humanitarian crises. To ensure ReliefWeb is updated around the clock, we maintain offices in three different time zones: Kobe (Japan), Geneva (Switzerland) and New York (USA). Wherever you are in the world, you can follow ReliefWeb on Twitter and Facebook, where we tweet on important and interesting humanitarian events, issues and content that we come across.
