Where we work
Around the world in many ways
UNHCR operates in more than 125 countries around the world, from major capitals to remote, often dangerous locations where its field staff are directly helping the most vulnerable victims of displacement. The UN refugee agency maintains offices in donor countries worldwide and wherever refugees are arriving, to ensure that the 1951 Refugee Convention is honoured.
UNHCR moves to decentralize and get closer to the people it assists. About 85 percent of its staff are out in the field, supported by the headquarters in Geneva and the Global Service Centre in Budapest, the two only numbering some nine percent of the total staff.
