Our Work

More than 100 million people around the world have been forced from their homes. Resettlement, asylum, and temporary statuses can offer displaced people options for refuge and safety—but many of those pathways are under threat. 

Refugees International is fighting to ensure that people seeking safety can access the protection they need and that countries around the world uphold their obligations under international law to provide access to asylum and other forms of refuge.
