Event Details

Migrants‘ Rights Scotland in cooperation with the Ethnic Minority Law Centre invites you to an evening of

  • joint learning about migrants‘ rights
  • sharing our experiences of life in the Highlands and beyond
  • exchanging ideas of how migrants, migrant community groups and supporting organisations can work together to promote the rights of migrants.

We are Migrants’ Rights Scotland, a migrant-led organisation working for the rights of all migrants, no matter where they come from or why they are here. We advocate for a rights-based approach to migration by supporting migrants and their community organisations to actively engage in the public debate on migration and to collectively influence policies that shape our lives here.
