Summary
This overview is not intended to be exhaustive but rather was created in order to place the efforts of UNHCR within a regional and national context. The regional overview and country chapters provide a picture of current legal frameworks and the implementation of initiatives to outline good practices from UNHCR and other organizations. A resource list and contact information for UNHCR offices are also included at the end of every chapter to encourage cooperation and exchange on this issue.
