Litigation Department

IRAP’s litigation department is dedicated to bringing innovative court challenges to address systemic issues affecting refugees, asylum seekers and others in need of a safe home. We leverage IRAP’s relationships with thousands of clients, expertise in providing direct client services, and connections to advocates around the world to advance the rights of all people to safe passage and to the opportunity to thrive.

Since we launched in 2017, we have won court victories that have benefited tens of thousands of people, including by re-opening pathways that have been shut down or restricted, and by ensuring that the government is processing applications promptly and fairly.
