The task of the CGRS consists of offering protection to foreigners who, if they return to their country of origin, run the risk of persecution or serious harm.
- Asylum seekers
- Recognised refugees
- Beneficiaries of subsidiary protection status
- Stateless persons
- Tracing missing persons
A refugee is an asylum seeker who has been granted refugee status, and therefore protection, by a country. Refugees must comply with the conditions of the Geneva Convention; they must have a well-founded fear of persecution owing to one of the criteria stated in the Geneva Convention: race, nationality, religion, political opinions or membership of a particular social group.
A beneficiary of subsidiary protection status is a person who has been granted subsidiary protection status. This person is a foreigner who does not meet the conditions to be recognised as a refugee, but who runs a real risk of serious harm in case of return to his/her country of origin.
