The Cyprus Refugee Council, is an independent, non- profit organization, established as the evolution of the Humanitarian Affairs Unit of the NGO Future Worlds Center. The Unit during its 11 years of operation had grown significantly to become the expert in Cyprus on refugee related issues, making it one of the main actors in Cyprus in the area. Besides implementing a UNHCR funded project from 2006 to 2017 the Unit had implemented a considerable number of related projects under various funds such as UNVFVT, EC funds, EPIM, ECRE, German Embassy and other.

List of projects implemented on behalf of UNHR

The United Nations High Commission for Refugees has been funding the Strengthening Asylum project since 2006. Following her participation as member of the Advisory Board of Extending EU Citizenship, Mrs. Christina Planas, Representative of the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) in Cyprus, asked Elia Petridou and Yiannis Laouris, members of Future Worlds Center (FWC) Board of Directors for FWC to assume the role of UNHCR's Implementing Organization in Cyprus. The excellent collaboration continued since then.
