UNAG works in coordination with relevant international agencies to advance understanding of both voluntary migration and forced displacement, helping to develop response tools of governmental and non-governmental organizations in Georgia
UNAG has been an implementing partner of UNHCR since 1998 and guided the Migration Sector Development Project, undertaken by the International Organization for Migration (IOM), through its implementation cycle in Georgia during 1999-2001.
UNAG disseminates information on refugee-related national and international practices and legislation to the border police, judges, lawyers, staff of the Ministry of Refugees and Accommodation, and other representatives of the executive branch. UNAG also encourages public awareness on asylum and refugee issues through publication of the newsletter Refuge. Our lawyers provide legal counsel and court representation to asylum-seekers in Georgia. Our researchers collect country-of-origin information on the principal reasons that Georgians may seek asylum abroad.
