ADVOCACY PROGRAM

As concerns activities under advocacy, we train Lawyers on the rights of vulnerable migrants as well as organizing conferences, talk shows, debates and seminars plus Workshops on issues about vulnerable migrants. We raise awareness about the rights of vulnerable migrants within the refugee community, law faculty students, police, the Judiciary, community leaders, religious authorities, traditional rulers, the media, and other main relevant target groups. We also carry out campaigns and other outreach activities for information dissemination, visibility, and the promotion of the rights of vulnerable migrants especially women, children and the disabled, or persons with special needs (PSNs). The long term goal under the advocacy program is the training of a corps of pro bono legal practitioners who will provide legal assistance to vulnerable migrants passing through the status determination (RSD) process at the UN Refugee Agency and to file such cases with the competent Ordinary Courts.
