UNHCR and its office in Israel issue and encourage the reading of publications on refugee-related topics.

These publications focus on areas of concern globally and locally, and are shared publicly to spread awareness about persons of concern and related topics such as the asylum process, access to education, and social inclusion.


RefWorld is the leading source of information necessary for taking quality decisions on refugee status. It contains a vast collection of reports and information relating to situations in countries of origin, policy documents and positions, and documents relating to international and national legal frameworks. Refworld is updated daily.

The information has been carefully compiled from UNHCR’s global network of field offices, governments, international, regional and non-governmental organizations, academic institutions and judicial bodies. Documents can be searched by country, publisher, date, and more.
