Published on 23 Apr 2018 View Original

Today, we have published our Annual Report highlighting our work over 2017.

2017 was a year of significant achievement for us, as we continued to work on our three main programmatic areas of: -identifying the violations that cause displacement and exile; -protecting the rights of those who are displaced, and -ensuring resolutions to their displacement are durable, rights respecting, safe and timely.

The 2017 report summarises our work outlining our involvement in the South Sudanese refugee crisis and highlighting our concerns as to the increasing trend of protection from not for refugees.

In addition, it details our advocacy work highlighting various displacement issues around the world and our continuous global engagement in providing refugees and displaced populations with access to information and resources via our online legal-aid platform.

Finally, through our research, in person meetings and participation in events around the world, IRRI catalysed policy level discussions on the smuggling of persons in the Horn of Africa, resolutions to exile and protection of displaced Burundians and on the AU and the responsibility to protect.
