International and regional laws and standards

The 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees (The Refugee Convention) and its 1967 protocol set the global standard for refugee protection and enjoy near universal ratification. Initially, the 1951 Convention promoted the protection of European refugees in the aftermath of World War II, but the 1967 Protocol expanded its scope as displacement spread around the world. Together they remain the cornerstone of refugee protection.
