About us

The International Refugee Rights Initiative was formed in June 2004 and is dedicated to addressing human rights issues linking conflict and displacement in Africa. We seek to enhance the protection of vulnerable populations, particularly the displaced, before, during and after conflict. We ground our advocacy in the rights accorded in international human rights instruments and strive to make these guarantees effective at the local level.

We aim to contribute to the improvement and creation of models of law and practice which best guarantee rights. We engage in legal and field-based research in order to better understand how policy affects refugees and we bring our findings to the attention of policy makers in national, regional and international fora.
