UNHCR has traditionally pursued three durable solutions for refugees: voluntary repatriation, local integration and third-country resettlement. Seeking and providing durable solutions for refugees is a key element of international protection and has been a core part of UNHCR’s mandate and work since its inception. The three traditional durable solutions are complementary. Implementing them in tandem benefits a higher number of refugees than would be the case if only one solution were made available. In addition, UNHCR is also exploring new approaches, such as labour mobility, temporary migration and alternative forms of legal stay, that can also help bring about solutions.
