International Refugee Rights Association’s Foreign Relations Board’s first priority is to work in
partnership with civil society organizations actively in the field of human and refugee rights.
The Foreign Relations Board interacts with universities in the world that have centers on
refugee rights and leading academics, and conducts joint academic studies and aims to raise
awareness of the world about the unlawful practices that refugees are subjected to.
It also visits refugee camps, where refugees are most populated. The purpose of these visits is
to listen to the legal problems of refugees and try to find solutions to the problems in
collaboration with local lawyers. The monitoring of the applications made outside of Turkey is
also done by this committee. After evaluating the applications, the lawyers in the region are
contacted and the process is followed in order to provide legal support to refugees.
