- "You will find here all the entries of the Practical Guide, regularly updated. The website is intended to be simple to use, interactive and didactic. In order to provide intuitive navigation, each entry is integrated into a broader category, a search engine is available and you will also find an index of convention and ratifications."

Quality Assurance (Refworld) [access]
- "Quality assurance projects differ in terms of objectives, length of cooperation and breadth of engagement. This special feature on Refworld aims to provide a dedicated platform for sharing publicly available project reports and relevant quality assurance tools and other publications which have been developed in the context of such projects. It also provides some examples of State run quality assurance mechanisms in which UNHCR does not have direct involvement." Side note: See also my related posts which highlighted many of these quality assurance projects.
