Praxis Signed MoU with Danish Refugee Council (DRC)

Praxis has been cooperating with DRC in the implementation of its EAR-funded project Support to Cross Boundary Initiatives for IDPs from Kosovo (September 1, 2004 – August 31, 2005). DRC’s Information Offices in seven towns in Serbia and Montenegro provide IDPs with different information and refer those IDPs who need legal assistance to Praxis offices. Beside direct assistance to individual clients, Praxis staff has also been providing training to DRC Information Officers.

In December 2004 DRC and Praxis signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) wishing to continue the longstanding relationship between DRC and NRC in the implementation of projects dealing with assistance to the displaced population and the protection of their legal rights. DRC and Praxis agreed to cooperate closely, share information, experience and knowledge related to issues of relevance for the displaced population and when it is of mutual interest undertake joint advocacy initiatives. DRC and Praxis also agreed to organize joint staff information sessions with the aim of exchanging information and expertise required for the effective removal of the barriers the displaced persons face in accessing their rights.
