Statistics and Demographic Section,
Global Data Service (GDS) UNHCR, Copenhagen

UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is offering a full-time internship with the Statistics and Demographic Section of the Global Data Service in UNHCR Copenhagen, Denmark.
Established in December 1950, UNHCR is a global organization dedicated to saving lives, protecting rights and building a better future for asylum seekers, refugees, returnees, internally displaced communities and stateless people. Every year, millions of men, women and children are forced to flee their homes to escape conflict and persecution. UNHCR currently operates in over 130 countries, using its long expertise to protect and care for millions.

Title: Statistics Project Intern (EGRISS monitoring)
Vacancy No: CPH/VN/2023/016
Duty Station: Copenhagen, Denmark
Duration: 6 months (with possible 2 months extension)
Contract Type: Internship
Closing date for application: 12 June 2023, Midnight CEST
Start date: July 2023

Organisational context
Increasingly, UNHCR’s data efforts rely on joint engagements with partners to better achieve outcomes for those affected by forced displacement. As part of these efforts, UNHCR has taken a leading role in the Expert Group on Refugee, IDP and Statelessness Statistics (EGRISS), both as a Steering Committee member and through hosting its Secretariat. The EGRISS currently consists of 55 countries and 35 international and regional organizations.
The EGRISS was established in 2016 by the UN Statistical Commission to develop recommendations on refugee and IDP statistics and produce guidance for their implementation at country level. The International Recommendations on Refugee (IRRS) and IDP (IRIS) Statistics were endorsed in 2018 and 2020, respectively, and implementation work is ongoing through advocacy, capacity building, and further methodological development. Most recently, the International Recommendations on Statelessness Statistics (IROSS) have been endorsed by the UN Statistical Commission in 2023. All three sets of recommendations aim to contribute to the improvement of official statistics on the identified populations produced through the national statistical systems of affected countries.
Access to reliable, timely, relevant and accurate data on these populations is essential to enhance their protection and support the achievement of durable solutions. The Statistics and Demographics Section develops statistical definitions and standards and oversees the production of global statistics on refugees and other populations of concern to UNHCR. The Agency’s Data Transformation Strategy 2020-2025 aims to position UNHCR as a trusted leader on data and information related to refugees and other populations of concern
A central focus of EGRISS’ third mandate (2020-2024) concerns capacity development which is pursued through regional engagement, technical support, guidance provision and online learning. The Secretariat also invests in monitoring the application of the international statistical recommendations by countries and institutions alike to feed into annual reporting processes. During the period 2020-2023, over 120 concrete examples of implementation have been identified. In 2023, the EGRISS Secretariat is embarking on a revision of its implementation monitoring system to improve the quality of the data it collects, and the insights that can be drawn from analysis of this data. These efforts will enable the identification of best practices, enhance knowledge dissemination, inform peer-to peer learning and future improvements of the recommendations. In advance of the 2023 Global Refugee Forum, this will also contribute to increased awareness of progress made by countries to pursue statistical inclusion of refugees, IDPs and stateless persons.
