The Advocacy Programme’s aim is to promote and strengthen the rights and integration of migrants and refugees in South Africa, through providing individual advice, publishing research, raising awareness, and advocating for legislative and policy reform and its proper implementation. We do this through paralegal advice and practical assistance, which is provided to individual clients on a walk-in basis, and through high-level advocacy such as submissions, reports and litigation. Aside from these services, we have various projects, focusing on unaccompanied and separated children, an outreach advocacy project in Bellville and deportation and detention matters. Please read our Programme page (embed link) to get a full understanding of the work that we do.
We require a minimum commitment of three months, Monday-Friday from 8.30am-4.30pm.
