    Our members are diverse, including service providers, human rights advocacy groups, research institutions, law firms providing pro-bono legal aid, refugee community-based organisations and refugees themselves. Almost all APRRN members  are civil society groups working in their specific local contexts, lobbying their governments for changes in policies and legislation to protect the rights of refugees.
