Summary of the project
This project strengthens 60 CSOs to provide legal assistance to asylum-seekers, detained migrants, and unaccompanied child migrants, as well as to identify cases of discrimination and use the mechanisms of protection against discrimination, and to prevent the long-term development of discriminatory practices. They further aim to influence decision makers to create an advanced legal and institutional framework in line with international standards.
Through this project, 60 civil society organisations will be strengthened to provide legal assistance to asylum-seekers, including detained migrants, and unaccompanied child migrants, and also (through direct work with them) to identify cases of discrimination and use the mechanisms of protection against discrimination.
