News: UNHCR's Revised RSD Manual

UNHCR has just issued a revised version of its Procedural Standards for Refugee Status Determination Under UNHCR's Mandate. The first edition of the manual was published in 2003. The aim of this resource is to "set out the minimum procedural standards for when RSD is conducted by UNHCR under its mandate. It establishes core principles and standards that must be observed to ensure that all asylum-seekers applying for refugee status determination under UNHCR’s mandate benefit from accurate, timely and consistent decision-making and to support capacity development of UNHCR RSD staff and other stakeholders."

You can access the complete version here or by individual chapter here. The Spanish version is available here.
