An Evaluation of UNHCR Turkeys Compliance with UNHCRs RSD Procedural Standards
Helsinki Citizens' Assembly prepared an evaluation report on UNHCR Turkey's compliance with UNHCR's Refugee Status Determination Procedural Standards, with the overall aim of assessing UNHCR Ankara office's compliance with specific aspects of the Standards and make relevant recommendations.
By assessing UNHCRs performance, we hope to highlight areas in which practices fall below, meet, or even rise above, the levels recommended in the Standards. In areas where we have identified significant gaps in compliance, we aim to emphasize the impact that these gaps have on refugee applicants and make concrete, relevant recommendations.
Our findings and recommendations are intended not only for use by UNHCR, but also for Turkeys Ministry of Interior (MOI).
A copy of this report was submitted to UNHCR BO Ankara for review. That offices unedited comments have since been integrated into the report in order to present a balanced perspective on the areas examined.
