Monthly overview of changes to the legislation | Poland
A set of legal analyses is conducted in partnership with the Rule of Law Institute Foundation (FIPP). For 20 years FIPP has been providing legal assistance to refugees and migrants in Poland. Since the escalation of the war in Ukraine, FIPP has been helping displaced persons in need of legal and integration assistance in the Lublin region. Since 2022, FIPP has been cooperating with DRC in providing legal aid, legalization and integration assistance to war refugees from Ukraine. The DRC-FIPP partnership specifically aims at assessing the holistic picture of the legislative frameworks, deepening knowledge on various topics related to temporary protection and asylum, as well as tracking changes in primary and secondary legislation on matters relevant to the Ukrainian displaced population living in Poland.
