Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The Information Service of The International Bureau for the Right of Asylum and Aid to Political Refugees was created by the Confürence Internationale pour le Droit d'Asile, held in Paris on June 20-21, 1936. It served as an umbrella organization for all German èmigrè associations. A major aim of the organisation was to lobby the League of Nations for a more secure refugee status. The organisation's secretary general was Paul Perrin, a left wing deputy, who was also president of the Centre de Liaison des Comitès pour le Statut des Immigrès, and one of eight members of a consultative commission, nominated by the French minister of the interior, with the object of screening applicants for refugee status.
