A compilation of resources that can be used by immigration and asylum lawyers representing young Albanian asylum seekers
MiCLU and Shpresa Programme‘s Breaking the Chains project has brought together specialist barristers, solicitors and academics to consider how legal professionals and others can ensure that children from Albania are granted meaningful protection against the risks of return to abuse in their country of origin or further exploitation in the UK.
As part of this initiative MiCLU have worked with other partner organisations to create and gather a toolkit of resources.
