Experts and knowledge about asylum
The daily work in the asylum centres brings Red Cross close to the asylum seekers. Through our contact with asylum seekers, we gain knowledge about their background, their circumstances and their needs. We use this knowledge to document and develop our asylum work. We also often fight on behalf of the asylum seekers with the outside world and the authorities, for instance when new legislation in the area is underway.
Red Cross’ professional experts in the asylum field regularly contribute new knowledge and are happy to share their experiences. This is all done to ensure the quality of everyday life for the asylum seekers during their stay in our centres.
