The Danish Refugee Council works with humanitarian, development and peacebuilding activities to ensure a dignified life for refugees, the displaced, and displacement-affected people. We work in conflict-affected areas, along the displacement routes, and in the countries where refugees settle. The range of our work is everything from relief work to strengthen the opportunity for a brighter future for refugees and internally displaced persons.
Climate change is arguably one of the defining challenges of our time. There is already increasing evidence pointing to Climate Change being one of the main triggers to internal displacement. In 2018 alone, 17.2 million new displacements associated with disasters were recorded (IDMC). DRC constantly works with strengthening its response and protection capacity in exactly those situations, not only by increasingly expanding its climate adaption approach promoting regenerative approaches and circular economies at local level, but also by constantly seeking new partners with state-of-the-art knowledge and expertise.
We survey and reclaim land rendered unusable by Explosive Remnants of War (EWRs) through manual and mechanical clearance of contaminated areas. We seek to educate affected communities, particularly children, about how to recognize and avoid harm from mines and Unexploded Ordinance (UXOs).
The DRC Asylum Department offers counselling to asylum seekers, refugees and migrants in Denmark as well as volunteers and case workers, who work with asylum and repatriation. The Asylum Department provides counselling throughout the Danish asylum procedure, the possibilities for rejected asylum seekers and the possibilities for returning home voluntarily (repatriation).

DRC work to integrate refugees and migrants in the Danish society. DRC Integration offer integration services, counselling, analyses, training, conferences and courses for professionals and volunteers working with refugees and migrants.
We engage and support civil society to have the agency, space and capacity to enable fulfillment of rights of people affected by conflict and displacement.
