The Evolving Role of the UNCHR: Should the Conventional Role of UNHCR Be Expanded?

Onder Bakircioglu

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper focuses on the question of whether the UNHCR should be governed only by its original 1950 mandate to provide international protection to refugees or should its role be re-defined in order to cover those who are not refugees, yet in refugee-like conditions. The purpose of this study is to scrutinize what rights UNHCR already possesses with regards to its newly-evolved tasks and what sort of legal framework is required today.
