UNHCR Representation in China

Terms of Reference

for Internship

 

Organizational Unit: PSP Beijing

Duty station: Beijing, China

Duration of the internship: from 22 June 2020 to 22 December 2020

Expected start date: 22 June 2020

Background information/Organizational Context:

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) was established on December 14, 1950 by the United Nations General Assembly. The UN Refugee Agency is mandated to lead and co-ordinate international action to protect refugees and resolve refugee problems worldwide. Its primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees. It strives to ensure that everyone can exercise the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another State, with the option to return home voluntarily, integrate locally or to resettle in a third country.

For over 69 years, UNHCR has helped millions of people to restart their lives. They include asylum seekers, refugees, returnees, stateless people and internally displaced persons. Its interventions in the areas of protection, shelter, health and education have been crucial, healing broken pasts and building brighter futures.

UNHCR works in 134 countries, with staff based in a mixture of regional and branch offices and sub and field offices. UNHCR’s staff works hard to help the displaced, specializing in a wide range of disciplines, including protection, administration, public affairs and health.

The UNHCR Office in China was established in 1979. Although China has been party to the 1951 Convention and 1967 Protocol since 1982, it has no law comprehensively governing asylum. In the absence of national refugee legislation, UNHCR continues to register asylum seekers, conducts individual refugee status determination under its mandate, seeks durable solutions for refugees, and provides direct assistance to the refugee population in mainland China.

The Standing Committee of China’s National People’s Congress adopted an Exit-Entry Administration Law on 30 June 2012, which came into force on 1 July 2013. This domestic law includes a provision (Article 46) regarding the treatment of refugees, which foresees, inter alia, the possibility for persons of concerns to legally reside in China on the basis of a temporary identification to be issued by the authorities. UNHCR has been advocating for implementing regulations concerning Article 46 as well as working on building the capacity of the Government of China to implement its obligations under the 1951 Geneva Convention relating to the Status of Refugees and its 1967 Protocol.

Building public awareness on refugee issues and the work of UNHCR has been core area of work for UNHCR Beijing Office, with the great contributions of the Goodwill Ambassador Ms. Yao Chen, and via the social media platform Weibo.

UNHCR will continue to endeavor working with all stakeholders in China to ensure persons of concern receive adequate protection and assistance as well as to seek durable solutions for refugees.
