Asia Pacific Mission for Migrants (APMM) is a cause-oriented regional center committed to support the migrants’ movement through advocacy, organizing, building linkages for the advancement of migrants’ rights. Established in 1984, APMM continues to work towards helping build a strong movement of migrants of different nationalities in Asia Pacific and Middle East (APME). We envision this as organized into a strong migrant movement, actively defending their rights, advancing solidarity with people’s movements in the countries where they are working and linking up with their peoples movements in their home countries.

The European Address Book Against Racism provides a useful tool for organisations that want to get in touch with other organisations to start collaboration. UNITED has done continuous research to come up with up-to-date and correct data. The annual printed edition contains the addresses (including e-mail and websites) of 2300 organisations and magazines active against racism, fascism, nationalism and in support of migrants and refugees, and 135 funding institutions.
The searchable online database contains over 4000 entries.
The Address Book is an invaluable tool, in total an estimated 40.000 - 50.000 copies are circulating in Europe, due to the fact that groups produce duplicates for their affiliates. The Address Book is one of the most well-known and well-used information tools in these working fields: whether you want to establish cross-contacts or improve the flow of information on a national or international level. It can be the basis for the development of common activities and campaigns.

The International Refugee Law Blog was created by passionate members of the ABA Section of International Law, Committee on International Refugee Law. The views expressed herein are those of individual contributors and not those of the American Bar Association or the Section of International Law. Our Committee members are concerned with the fundamental human rights of refugees around the world. International, regional and national laws give refugees a wide range of civil, political, social, economic and cultural rights, from non-refoulement (the right not to be returned to a country where they fear persecution), to freedom from discrimination, to the right to work. In practice, however, refugees rarely are able to assert these rights.
The Committee seeks to educate its members and the public about these issues, to foster critical discussion toward a greater realization of refugee rights, and to stimulate legal and policy advocacy on behalf of refugees worldwide. To effect these goals, the Committee seeks to host programs and conferences; advise section members on news and legal developments; issue written comments and analyses on the implications of U.S. laws and policies for international refugee rights; provide networking opportunities; participate in governmental and international forums; and otherwise promote refugee rights at the international level..If you are interested in contributing to the blog, please aba [dot] refugeelaw [at] gmail [dot] com (contact us).
