The Refugee Women’s Resource Project – Group Award Winner – 2006

The Refugee Women’s Resource Project (RWRP) was established in 2000 by Asylum Aid – a registered charity providing free legal advice and representation to people seeking asylum – with the aim of addressing the ingrained gender discrimination experienced by women seeking protection in the UK from persecution and human rights abuses abroad. The RWRP is unique, both in the way it integrates dedicated legal advice provision, asylum support casework, original research and country information expertise, and in its use of the information it generates through this work as the evidence base for its policy development, lobbying and campaigning. For more information about the work of the RWRP, including their research (Lip Service or Implementation?, Asylum Aid, March 2006) please go to their website.
