Poland blocks hundreds of migrants at Belarus border

The role of UNHCR in Belarus is to advise and support the government and to build the capacity of national partners to address the refugee and statelessness situation. The activities are targeted, among other things at improving asylum space in the region, promoting tolerance to facilitate integration and advocating the country’s accession to the UN statelessness convention. The office also strives to develop durable solutions for forcibly displaced persons with a focus on education and employment.
