Kick-off event of the Refugee-led Network in the Netherlands
Being part of the European Coalition of Migrants and Refugees and a signatory of the Global Refugee Forum’s Pledge to meaningful refugee participation of the Global Refugee-led Network, New Women Connectors is working towards bringing their expertise and commitment for building a national Refugee-Led Network (RLN) in the Netherlands.
The aim of the RLN is to connect refugee advocates and refugee-led initiatives in the Netherlands to amplify refugee voices in decision making processes and advocate for meaningful participation and representation. Policymakers and governments should recognise the positive potential and impact of collective action by refugees and facilitate opportunities where refugees can make claims and provide solicited and unsolicited advice on their host state. By collective solidarity, refugee advocates united in the RLN, will demonstrate the areas of concern in the refugee system where restructuring is most needed, identified by those it intends to serve.
On 15 March 2023 we are hosting a kickoff event of the RLN. During the kickoff event, we will invite prominent refugee advocates, refugee-led initiatives and stakeholders to support us in building and co-creating this platform together. Anyone based in the Netherlands working with and for the refugee community is welcome!
When: 15th March 2023, 16:00-18:30
