Assistance to Refugees and Migrants in Legal Clinics

 

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 programme of the EU-Russia Civil Forum in 2017 included the examination of practices in specialised refugee law clinics in the EU and the analysis of existing potentials for more intensive work with migrants and refugees in Russian legal clinics.
