History of the Refugee Work Rights Campaign

The Refugee Work Rights Campaign was launched by Asylum Access in 2013 to build a groundswell of support for the idea that refugees should have access to opportunity, entrepreneurship and a fair chance at a new life.

Since then, we have been joined by advocates, leaders, academics and refugees around the world, who are calling for change. Our interactive website is a place to learn, engage and take action to ensure that laws, policies and practices allow refugees to achieve their potential, no matter where they live. Because when refugees can access their rights, communities thrive.
