Aid Organization for Refugees and Asylum Seekers in Israel

Public Activity

The activity of Assaf 's Public Advocacy Department is aimed at changing government policy towards asylum-seekers and promoting their rights. The Department team attends discussions at Knesset committees, is in contact with national and municipal authorities, composes and distributes position papers and is in contact with the media. In addition to its efforts relating to the wider issue of refugee rights in Israel, it engages in focused activity  in the sphere of socio-economic rights and individual welfare.

As part and parcel of its public advocacy work, Assaf runs an information project aimed at the general public, including lectures and tours and presence on Internet social networks.
