1951 Refugee Convention and 1967 Protocol Relating to the Status of Refugees

The 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees is a historic document, creating a unified definition of who a refugee is and what rights they are entitled to. Together with the 1967 Protocol, that removed some of the limits of the Convention, these documents serve as a humanitarian foundation for refugees.
