Welcome to APRRN!
The Asia Pacific Refugee Rights Network (APRRN) is an open and growing network consisting of more than 200 (as of September 2014) civil society organisations and individuals from 26 countries committed to advancing the rights of refugees in the Asia Pacific Region. We do this through information sharing, mutual capacity building, and joint advocacy. APRRN members are diverse, including service providers, human rights advocacy groups, research institutions, law firms providing pro-bono legal aid, refugee community-based organisations and refugees themselves. Almost all APRRN members are civil society groups working in their specific local contexts, lobbying their governments for changes in policies and legislation to protect the rights of refugees.
