UNHCR’s work in Belgium focuses on supporting authorities and organizations working with refugees, asylum seekers and stateless persons. UNHCR Belgium seeks to ensure that legislation, procedures, policies, and practices align with international protection standards. In addition, UNHCR runs awareness campaigns targeted at the general public to shine a light on the situation of refugees in Belgium and around the globe.
