Specialized legal assistance for asylum seekers in Romania


      The project aims to meet the need of specialized assistance throughout the entire asylum procedure by providing legal counseling and advice for asylum seekers who are registered with the General Inspectorate for Immigration/Directorate for Asylum and Immigration in the six reception centers. This often represents the only free specialized legal support asylum seekers have.

The overall objectives of the project consist of:

  • Improving the quality of interpretation and legal assistance in order to efficiently, legally, fairly get through the refugee status determination procedure.
  • improving the quality of legal assistance provided to asylum seekers in order to ensure the full respect of human rights

To achieve these objectives, the project proposed a series of activities aimed to cover legal counseling and specific assistance for asylum seekers.
