With climate change, terrorism and rising international unrest, the world is in the midst of one of the greatest refugee crises ever.
Our Immigration Law Committee sat down with Brian Dikoff of Migrants Organise, a charity that supports refugees and migrants in the UK.
They discussed the legalities surrounding refugees and migrants in the UK, the Appointed Litigation Friend scheme that Migrants Organise have provided to fill the gap when migrants lack mental capacity to instruct a solicitor, and how the situation can be improved.
