Access to State-Funded Legal Aid Services by Asylum-Seekers and Migrants in Turkey: Challenges and Opportunities
Pro Bono for refugee protection: A practical guide for pro bono partnerships in emerging refugee host states
In December 2017, RSN published an original report detailing the ways NGOs and legal service-providers in refugee host states can harness the potential of pro bono partnerships to support refugee rights. The report is a first-of-its kind guide for practitioners in host countries lacking an established culture of pro bono.
In September 2016, as a member of civil society RSN issued a statement regarding the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants.
Weekly Digest on Rohingya in Bangladesh
As part of its mission to protect and uphold refugee rights, RSN follows forced displacement situations around the world. Among these, RSN follows the plight of the Rohingya community, an ethnic minority persecuted and driven from their home country of Myanmar. Living across South and Southeast Asia, the largest Rohingya population is living in
Bangladesh, a developing country that confronts many challenges in hosting a staggering 1 million Rohingya refugees.
Given the complexities involving the global, regional, and national response to what has been described as a genocide, and a rapidly changing context in Bangladesh, RSN and partners identified a need for greater information-sharing among actors in the field. To that end, RSN compiles a weekly developments tracker, focusing primarily on news coming out of Bangladesh, but including regional and international perspectives. An archive of the weekly digests are hosted and linked below in reverse chronological order. If you would like to receive these digests directly to your inbox, please email [email protected]
Please note: In compiling these digests, RSN has attempted to include the most relevant news of the week concerning Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. From time to time, news beyond Bangladesh or the Rohingya community is included, but RSN does not seek to expand the scope of review. We recognize that some developments may have been overlooked, and that some sources may not be viewed by all as credible or balanced. Inclusion of a news story and its summary does not constitute any kind of endorsement or position taken by RSN, and the text and positions included in the above are solely those of the authors of the respective articles.
