Asylum seeking

The SOGIGESC Unit has been involved in several meetings with the International Protection Agency, the Agency for the Welfare of Asylum Seekers and the High Commissioner for Refugees within the United Nations (UNHCR). Several training sessions with professionals working in this field were discussed while the SOGIGESC Unit also attended training sessions which are offered by the European Asylum Support Office, to enhance their capacity to address similar themes in future initiatives.

In partnership with UNHCR, the SOGIGESC Unit facilitated a training session attended by cultural mediators coming from different organisations working in the asylum field. The two entities also worked together in developing material for a campaign targeted towards LGBTIQ asylum seekers, for which more information can be accessed here​.
