ABOUT: 

The Republic of Armenia acceded to the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees and its 1967 Protocol in 1993. Armenia also acceded to both the 1954 Convention relating to the Status of Stateless Persons and the 1961 Convention on the Reduction of Statelessness, as well as a number of international and regional human rights instruments. In 1999, the Government adopted the Law on Refugees and Asylum, which has been amended several times. The latest amendments to the law were adopted in December 2015 and addressed a number of protection gaps. Secondary legislation and internal guidelines required to facilitate application were drafted in 2016. With the adoption of a new Constitution in December 2015, a number of rights will have added protection, such as the principle of non-refoulement and the right to seek asylum. Reference to the practice of UN Human Rights Treaty Bodies may pave the way for UNHCR opinions to be given greater weight. Civil society, including UNHCR partners, play an important role in ensuring proper application of the law, monitoring of Armenia’s adherence to its international obligations, and consolidating data that may support future advocacy regarding legislative reform. As of 30 June 2018 there are 17,996 refugees, including people in a refugee-like situation, 58 asylum-seekers and 791 stateless persons in Armenia. The main countries of origin of refugees are Syria, Iraq, Ukraine, Iran.

Refugee Status Determination Procedures
The State Migration Service of the Republic of Armenia has been carrying out refugee status determination (RSD) procedure at first instance since 1999. UNHCR can observe first instance interviews and may provide advice and information on individual cases. Appeals against negative decisions by the SMS may be lodged before three court instances: the administrative court, the administrative court of appeal, and the court of cassation.

ABOUT COMPANY: 

Mission Armenia is an Armenia-based NGO with over twenty-year experience in refugee assistance, as well as community-based activities for the vulnerable groups in Armenia.
