Information on the Refugee Council

The Refugee council of Thuringia (e.V.) is an independent non-governmental organization that aims to protect refugee rights and to improve conditions for asylum seekers. We want to reduce prejudices and fight against the discrimination of refugees in Thuringia. We draw attention to inhumane conditions and ill-treatment in the accommodation of refugees. We also comment on current political developments concerning refugees. We offer consultation and legal information for refugees.
