Chapter Summary

This chapter explains the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Executive Committee Conclusion No. 8 (XXVIII) 1977 on determination of refugee status. The executive committee noted the report of the High Commissioner concerning the importance of procedures for determining refugee status. The Executive Committee requested UNHCR to prepare, after due consideration of the opinions of states parties to the 1951 convention and the 1967 protocol, a detailed study on the question of the extra-territorial effect of determination of refugee status in order to enable the Committee to take a considered view on the matter at a subsequent session taking into account the opinion expressed by representatives that the acceptance by a contracting state of refugee status as determined by other states parties to these instruments would be generally desirable.
