As UNHCR statistics generally rely on data from host countries, statistics on refugees alone can give an insufficient account of refugee numbers, as some host countries will not grant refugee status to certain groups. Including statistics for individuals in refugee-like situations is an attempt to account for unrecognised refugees and does not include internally displaced persons. Statistics for stateless refugees are included if available.

With 20 years of experience in program implementation and grant making for Armenian civil society, EPF positions itself as a ‘think and do’ tank, with expertise in the nexus of project design and management, network building and consortium management, civil society capacity building, policy research and advocacy, alternative content development and peace building. Human Rights programming of EPF is aimed at addressing major Human Rights issues in the country such as freedom of expression, religious tolerance, non-discrimination etc. Paradigm of Transformative Change lies at the core of EPF’s Human Rights Program: EPF works on changing the structural causes of intolerance, violence and discrimination, as well as the attitudes and behavior of actors. Thoughtful study of a problem, close cooperation with all counterparts and beneficiaries, looking for out-of-box solutions are some of the instruments EPF applies while designing and implementing projects. Since EPF is a think and do tank, it works full circle from research to policy advice and implementation. In particular, EPF, with Dutch support, recently developed a draft of Anti-Discrimination (Equality) Law for the Ministry of Justice, and works on changing social attitudes and discriminatory behaviors in anticipation of the adoption of the Law. When contacted and asked to prepare a report, EPF will require modest financial assistance to carry out the work
