International and transnational COI databases

Refworld is the protection information database managed by UNHCR for the purposes of making relevant information available to all persons involved in decision making on claims for international protection. Refworld not only includes COI but also refugee case law, international treaties and national legislation, and policy documents. Refworld is available in English, Russian and Spanish.

The COI Portal of the European Asylum Support Office (EASO) provides selected COI authored by EU+ national asylum authorities, EASO and other EU institutions (for example, the EU External Action Service) to assist asylum practitioners (COI researchers, caseworkers, decision and policy-makers, lawyers, legal aid providers and judges). The COI Portal is managed by EASO in cooperation with EU+ states' national asylum authorities.
