Registration: A Practical Guide for Field Staff

Manual and Guideline
Originally published


These guidelines offer a set of approaches and tools that can be applied to varying scenarios to deal with the problem of collecting data about refugees who need protection or assistance. The following main chapters are included:

- Registration strategy
- Phases of a UNHCR registration
- Registration scenarios
- Assistance with planning and implementation
- Distribution at camp level

Rather than a guide presenting a set of rules or procedures that must be followed, the guide offers ideas and techniques which can be consulted as a kind of 'toolbox' by staff working in the field.
