Protecting the rights of refugees in Turkey by engaging with and building capacity of advocates in the region.
Launched in February 2012, RSN brings together advocates for refugee rights in Turkey with advocates and interested parties in the U.S. and around the world. Building off of experience in the region, RSN advocates understand Turkey’s role both as a country of transit for irregular migrants and asylum-seekers trying to gain access to the European Union, as well as a country of asylum for many refugees. Given that the protection of refugees is a global responsibility, and identifying durable solutions requires the cooperation of disparate actors, including governments, NGOs, and international organizations, RSN seeks to contribute to such efforts by increasing awareness, building partnerships, and ultimately making suggestions to help make long-term solutions for refugees in Turkey more easily accessible and a more common reality.
