Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Executive Committee Conclusion No. 30 (XXXIV), 1983 on the Problem of Manifestly Unfounded or Abusive Applications for Refugee Status or Asylum. Applications for refugee status by persons who clearly have no valid claim to be considered refugees under the relevant criteria constitute a serious problem in a number of States. Such applications are burdensome to the affected countries and detrimental to the interests of those applicants who have good grounds for requesting recognition as refugees. National procedures for the determination of refugee status may usefully include special provision for dealing in an expeditious manner with applications which are considered to be so obviously without foundation as not to merit full examination at every level of the procedure. Such applications have been termed either "clearly abusive" or "manifestly unfounded".
