The World Council of Churches is the global ecumenical fellowship of Protestant and Orthodox churches; its 332 member national churches represent Christian communities in more than 100 countries worldwide. The Council serves its member churches to advance towards Christian unity, to facilitate common witness, to support evangelism, to express concern in service of human need, and to foster church renewal, among other purposes.

The WCC Refugee and Migration Service assists and encourages churches to participate in ministry with refugees, migrants and internally displaced people and to work for justice and dignity for uprooted people worldwide. The Service provides resource materials, develops church perspectives, facilitates inter-church consultation, and conveys church views to international fora.

The Refugee and Migration Service is a part of WCC Programme Unit IV - Sharing and Service. Further information may be obtained by written request to the WCC Refugee and Migration Service at the address listed above.

Official policy of the World Council of Churches is expressed in the 1995 WCC Central Committee Statement on Uprooted People, “A Moment to Choose: Risking to be with Uprooted People,” available separately. Views expressed in this Resource Book draw on that policy statement, but are not necessarily official positions of the World Council of Churches.

Sections or material from this Resource Book may be freely reproduced with acknowledgement; please furnish to the WCC Refugee and Migration Service a copy of any material reproduced in other publications.
