Refugees And Migrants | Magyar Helsinki Bizottság

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. Working in partnership with UNHCR, the HHC 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 training activities, we work towards ensuring high-quality and rights-based asylum procedures both in Hungary and the EU. We also maintain The Refugee Law Reader, a unique international on-line refugee law curriculum website. We promote the rights and the protection of stateless persons.
