Refugee Solidarity Network

Brooklyn, United States
Joined March 2018

RSN seeks to protect and expand refugee rights while supporting civil society in refugee host states. We do so by building capacity, research and advocacy, and awareness-raising.

Presence in: Turkey, United States
Focus: Citizenship & Identification, Governance, Accountability & Transparency, Other, Right to Information

From RSN’s launch in 2014, we have focused our attention on one of the world’s most significant host countries of refugees: Turkey. RSN supports and works together with leading national NGO Refugee Rights Turkey (RRT) to provide free-of-charge legal assistance for refugees and to cultivate a rights-based response at the national level. We mobilize resources from the US to boost RRT’s capacity and connect advocates between the countries, while promoting pro bono partnerships among the Turkish legal field. We have recently expanded such efforts to neighboring countries in the Mediterranean region.

Channeling these experiences from the field, RSN advocates in global forums to increase protection and opportunities for refugees around the world. We also work to raise awareness of American audiences to understand the importance of refugee rights.

Our work occurs at the intersection of humanitarian assistance, migration, and development, and seeks to take a constructive approach at a most challenging time.
