In 1951, in the aftermath of WW2, the United Nations agreed a legal basis for the right to seek safety in another country.
In 2015 we stand at another pivotal moment for the human rights of those seeking sanctuary from persecution.
On 8th December, in the run up to International Human Rights Day, come and hear about the current situation: from refugees, lawyers, activists and volunteers.
Find out what you can do to support the human rights of asylum seekers, with a chance to meet, talk and make plans at the end of the evening.
