Our clients have told us repeatedly, to have work is to have life. However, refugees are still denied access to self-employment, wage earning employment and legal protections around the world. In addition, there is very little research to help us understand the practical barriers to refugee employment. In the coming months, Asylum Access will begin organizing a global advocacy plan, starting with issuing a survey to better understand these barriers. Armed with this information, Asylum Access, along with partners and coalition members, will start working toward practical solutions for refugees seeking self-sufficiency around the world.
