Frequently words are not enough to explain the dramatic situations in which forcibly displaced persons live. This section tries to bring you closer to the lives of refugees through with the presentation of audiovisual materials.
Advocacy

Defending the rights of refugees and the forcibly displaced

A vital part of the Jesuit Refugee Service mission is to defend the rights of refugees and migrants throughout the world. JRS advocates for just and generous policies and projects for the benefit of victims of forced displacement, so that those made vulnerable by exile can receive support and protection and durable solution to their plight can be achieved.
