Assistance to Refugees and Migrants in Legal Clinics of the Russian Federation

 

Migrants, especially refugees, do not have a real access to legal protection. At the same time, the established legal reality is often against them, and few rights they have are almost impossible to know and observe, especially in a financially and socially unfavorable context. Legal clinics could provide inexpensive and effective support to improve this situation.

One of the projects of the "Legal Dialogue" program of the EU-Russia Civil Forum in 2017 included assistance in the development of specialized legal clinics to assist migrants and refugees. Its goal is to engage legal clinics in work in the field of migration and support the creation of synergies with NGOs working in this field.
