The Iraqi Refugee Assistance Project (IRAP) works with Iraqis displaced by violence. The program is the first and only organization that provides comprehensive legal assistance to individual refugees abroad during the resettlement process. The clients are not just ‘under-served’ or ‘marginalized,’ they are stateless people completely outside any system that would defend them. Deprived of rights to work, move freely, even access schools and medical care, Iraqi refugees are completely disenfranchised. For them, resettlement in a country that recognizes the human rights of refugees is the only hope. By mobilizing an international network of lawyers, law students, volunteers and experts to address the plight of refugees both here and in the Middle East, IRAP helps refugees navigate an unfamiliar, opaque, and bureaucratically complex system.
