Protecting refugees

The right to seek asylum and the obligation of protecting refugees is enshrined in numerous international human rights instruments and forms an integral part of European values.

As an implementing partner of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the Hungarian Helsinki Committee provides free legal assistance to asylum seekers arriving in Hungary and strives to ensure access to asylum for those in need of international protection (such as refugees or stateless persons). Through our legal counselling and regular training activities, we work towards ensuring high-quality and rights-based asylum procedures both in Hungary and the EU.

The HHC also maintains The Refugee Law Reader, a unique international on-line refugee law curriculum as well as promotes the rights and the protection of stateless persons.
