New: Extended country pages

We are pleased to introduce an improvement to country pages on

The new country pages provide a better overview of the information available. The first extended country page is now public for Afghanistan. Currently we are working on Iran. Somalia and Iraq are planned for 2022 as well. We aim to offer extended country pages for all countries of priority "A". Individual elements will also be used for lower priority countries.

Elements of the extended country pages are

  • Country briefing
    A country briefing provides a quick introduction to the most important issues relevant with regard to international protection, as well as suggested links for an search.
  • Map collection
    The collection of maps provides a thematically structured access to maps available on
  • As before, particularly important publications, the featured topics, as well as current positions of UNHCR or the EUAA are highlighted.
  • Furthermore, the list of important documents, links to country profiles and a collection of national laws will be available on the country page further on. We are working to structure the latter thematically in the future, in a way similar to the new map collection. For selected countries there is also a "law guide" that explains how best to research laws for the respective country.
