LRWC advocacy makes a big difference

LRWC work influences positive outcomes and remediation of rights violations. LRWC often works in cooperation with other non-government organizations by initiating, contributing to, or endorsing, joint initiatives. It is usually not possible to determine whether or the extent to which, LRWC’s own and joint work contributed to a particular ‘success’. However, victims and their advocates continue to report that LRWC work is vitally important to achieving justice in individual cases and providing a source of hope in the interim, and in promoting better knowledge of internationally protected rights.
