Amnesty International’s observations to UNHCR’s consultations on Convention Plus

Amnesty International believes that Convention Plus could provide a process for developing concrete responsibility-sharing arrangements, that to be effective must include a strong protection component. It should incorporate more explicitly the human rights obligations of states, and the human rights context in which the 1951 Refugee Convention rests. This was reflected in the Global Consultations and the Declaration of States Parties of December 2001.
