UNHCR supports the Portuguese Government in ensuring access of asylum seekers to a fair and effective asylum procedure, contributing to improve its quality and efficiency, aiming at the continuous development and strengthening of the national legal framework and policy.

UNHCR, in close co-operation and partnership with Implementing Partner, the Portuguese Refugee Council (CPR) advocates for and addresses these objectives through advocacy, high-level meetings, networking, capacity-building, awareness raising and public information, but also through the expansion of reception conditions and the support provided to asylum seekers and refugees in Portugal by the various services of CPR.
