The mandate of the Inspector General's Office (IGO) comprises three functions: inspections of field offices and headquarters' units; investigations of possible misconduct by UNHCR personnel; and ad hoc inquiries into grave violent attacks on UNHCR personnel and operations.

Ad hoc inquiries into other incidents that could directly impact the credibility and integrity of the UN refugee agency can also be carried out by the IGO at the High Commissioner's request.

Log in to the Executive Committee's secure site to read inspection reports, inquiry reports and reports on periodic independent reviews of the Inspector General's Office. Access is restricted to authorized users.
