Aufgabe: The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (the UN Refugee Agency, also known as UNHCR) is an intergovernmental organization with a mandate to protect refugees and stateless persons worldwide. Promoting respect for international protection norms in European Union (EU) law and policy is of vital importance to UNHCR, and the agency, accordingly, provides its views on a wide range of issues related to access to Europe, asylum, refugee protection, resettlement and integration in the Member States of the EU. UNHCR's reports, proposals and observations on EU asylum law and policy can be found on this page:

The Regional Representation for EU Affairs (RREUA) collaborates with EU institutions in Brussels on these issues, and works closely with the European Asylum Support Office (EASO) in Malta and Frontex, the EU's external border agency, based in Warsaw. The RREUA in Brussels also supports UNHCR’s activities and regional offices in litigation before national and regional courts on legal questions of concern to UNHCR.
Support on thematic issues such as trafficking, SGBV, child protection and statelessness in Europe is also provided from Brussels.
