For information about vacancies, please refer to the Vacancies section of our website. Please note, we are NOT in a position to accept spontaneous applications for jobs or internships, paid or unpaid.

Please note that ECRE, the European Council on Refugees and Exiles, is a pan-European alliance of 104 non-governmental organisations protecting and advancing the rights of refugees, asylum seekers and displaced persons. Our mission is to promote the establishment of fair and humane European asylum policies and practices in accordance with international human rights law.

As such, the ECRE Secretariat does not have the capacity to provide assistance on individual cases.

However, we do have Member organisations in most of EU countries that may be in a position to help you. To find their contacts details please visit ECRE members.

If you are in need of legal assistance, please refer to the Need a Lawyer section of our website.

If there are no ECRE Members in the country where you are located, we would advise you to contact the nearest office of the High Commissioner for Refugees of the United Nations (UNHCR).


The European Council on Refugees and Exiles (ECRE) does not access, store or share personal information of external parties beyond keeping contact lists of already public contacts of relevant media, organisational or institutional representatives for the purpose of professional email exchange which are stored internally (in Office 365).
