General Background:

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees was established on December 14, 1950 by the United Nations General Assembly.

Its primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees. It strives to ensure that everyone can exercise the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another State, with the option to return home voluntarily, integrate locally or to resettle in a third country.

UNHCR established its presence in Georgia in 1993, to provide emergency humanitarian assistance to internally displaced persons (IDPs) who had fled armed conflict in Abkhazia in 1992-93.

The UNHCR operation in Georgia is firmly embedded in UNHCR's global mandate to provide protection to refugees and other displaced populations and to assist states in finding durable solutions for them. The objective of UNHCR's engagement is that the rights of persons of concern - asylum seekers, refugees, the internally displaced and stateless persons - are respected, protected and ensured, that their basic needs are addressed and that human security is enhanced.
