Quick Guide to the New 2018 Guidelines on Assessing and Determining the Best Interests of the Child
UNHCR has updated its Guidelines on Assessing and Determining the Best Interests of the Child (Best Interests Procedure (BIP) Guidelines). The BIP Guidelines combine a conceptual framework of the best interests of the child with field-driven, operational guidance to provide one consolidated, practical frame of reference for staff and partners in the field. They are based on extensive consultation with UNHCR and partners, and replace the 2008 Guidelines on Determining the Best Interests of the Child and the accompanying Field Handbook.
