Rights in Exile
The Rights in Exile Programme works to achieve better protection of refugee rights by networking legal assistance providers with resources and training, and facilitating access to free legal assistance and information for refugees around the world. The Legal Resources tab establishes a centralised database of contact details of free legal assistance providers in over 230 countries, a database of country of origin experts, our post-deportation monitoring project, and information on legal processes relating to refugees.
The website also provides platforms for training in refugee law, such as self-study courses.
The Rights in Exile Programme is dedicated to strengthening universal legal protection for refugees .
This programme provides information as well as access to resource persons who will help you with special issues. The Refugee Resources tab above is formed to provide the guidance and tools essential for a refugee in their process of applying for asylum and status determination based on their country. There is also assistance for Family Reunification available, which you can access here.

Further, the Special Issues tab offers helpful resources and contacts on special issues in refugee status determination, including LGBTI, witchcraft accusations, the exclusion clause, gender-based persecution, and other emerging or under-resourced areas.
