Each pledging entity of the Global Refugee Forum Legal Community Pledge is primarily responsible for meeting its pledged commitments. However, in the months after the GRF, the NGOs that initially drove the creation of the Pledge, informally established a ‘Core Group’ to support its overall implementation. PILnet, as the coordinating body for the Pledge, provides secretariat/backbone support for the Core Group.
The Terms of Reference for the Core Group can be found here. These have been adopted on an interim measure on the understanding that sustained efforts will be made by the Core Group to develop a more formalized and representative structure for the governance, strategy development, coordination, and back bone support for the Pledge ahead of the 2023 Global Refugee Forum.
At present, the core group consists of the following members:
- Act for Peace
- Asia Pacific Refugee Rights Network (APRRN)
- Danish Refugee Council
- Justice Centre Hong Kong
- Refugee Legal
- Refugee Solidarity Network
- St. Andrew’s Refugee Services (StARS)
- Global Refugee Led-Network (GRN)
- Stacy Topouzova (Individual Member)
