The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) is an independent humanitarian organisation working to protect the rights of displaced and vulnerable people during crises. NRC provides assistance to meet immediate humanitarian needs, prevent further displacement and contribute to durable solutions.

NRC is Norway’s largest international humanitarian organisation and widely recognised as a leading fieldbased displacement agency within the international humanitarian community.

NRC is a rights-based organisation and is committed to the humanitarian principles of humanity, neutrality, independence and impartiality.

In 2018, NRC worked in both new and protracted crises across 31 countries. NRC’s main activity is the delivery of humanitarian aid through programme activities in the field. It specialises in six areas of expertise, or "core competencies": shelter and settlements; livelihoods and food security; information, counselling and legal assistance; education; camp management; and water, sanitation and hygiene promotion.
