International media

As the Dutch Council for Refugees our focus and first priority is on Dutch national media. Especially in busy times, it can therefor occur that we are unable to deal with your international media request. For a comparison on several refugee and asylumseekers related topics in different EU countries; please check AIDA, the Asylum information database and the Comparator.

For questions about emergency aid projects in crisis areas worldwide, we kindly refer you to Stichting Vluchteling and UNHCR Nederland.
