The UNHCR Headquarters Fonds list

UNHCR established a Central Registry in 1951 that was responsible for filing the official records of staff in headquarters. Nearly any subject of concern to the organization can be found in these files. The Classified Subject Files of the Central Registry (Fonds 11) provide a valuable resource for scholarship, documenting the legal protection work of UNHCR and other activities since the founding of the organisation. The Central Registry function at headquarters was closed in 1995.

In addition to the Central Registry Fonds 11, the Headquarters Fonds also include the records of the High Commissioners, External Affairs, Protection, Assistance Operations and Regional Bureaux. A complete listing of Headquarters Fonds with links to finding aids is available.
