Founded in 2014, the Italian Coalition for Civil Liberties and Rights (or CILD) is a network of civil society organizations that protects and expands the rights and liberties of all, through a combination of advocacy, public education and legal action.
Types of assistance offered by the organisation:
Target group: human rights defenders
Operates in Italy*
Current Italian and EU migration policies continue to be focused on security, unlawful detention and deportation and there is a bipartisan unwillingness to provide a safe and legal way to enter the country. Through the Italian Center for Legal Action CILD provides legal information and advice to refugees and supports the work of lawyers who litigate to ensure that their fundamental rights are respected.
*available for any nationalities seeking asylum in Italy
