UNHCR Representation in China

Vacancy Announcement


Terms of Reference for Private Sector Partnerships Internship

Duration: November 2019 – April 2020, 6 months

Location: Country Office Beijing (CO Beijing)

Application closing date: 21 October 2019

Background

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 nearly 70 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.

The UNHCR Office in China was established in 1979. China has been party to the 1951 Convention and 1967 Protocol since 1982, but the Government has not yet developed domestic asylum legislation. Therefore UNHCR registers asylum seekers, conducts individual refugee status determination under its mandate and seeks durable solutions for refugees. UNHCR also strives to provide direct assistance to the refugee population in mainland China notably because refugees do not have access to Government subsidized services for health and social services. However the assistance budget is limited and can only partially cover basic needs such as food, shelter, and prioritized medical care.

Recently the Government established the National Immigration Administration (NIA) under the Ministry of Public Security (MPS) to oversee all refugee-related matters. Its creation is expected to encourage the Government to consider a greater engagement in asylum and refugee protection.

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.
