MRN in collaboration with Asylum Access Thailand Seeks

Advancing Legal Rights Protection for New Refugees Project aims to contribute to, protect and expand the rights of new refugees in Thailand, especially those who fled because of exercising their basic rights and freedoms.

This project is a joint implementation with the MRN, and will require strengthening the coordination among, and ensuring the input of, MRN members throughout the lifespan of the project. The expertise shared by these members will underpin the development of strategy, outreach, and execution of this project.
