TRC, which already has 23 members while aiming to improve its capacity by adding 20 new members with its management team in cooperation with OXFAM, IGAM and IBC, will continue to work in a national structure function entirely managed by refugees and will contribute significantly to national and international advocacy with the membership mechanism that it has developed.
Vice President of International Blue Crescent Foundation Muzaffer Baca, who is also the Member of the Board of Turkey Refugee Council, stated that it acts as a common framework for the coordinated workspace and he particularly emphasized the sensitivity of involving local and central governments in the process of creating processes and policies.
Turkey Refugee Council (TRC) is a pilot mechanism that advocates for asylum and immigration with the number of refugees in Turkey reaches about 4 million, that covers all NGOs that contribute to its implementation by producing concrete policies. While this mechanism determines common agendas by considering the priorities and diversity of its members, it will also strengthen its capacity to meet with different actors by always actively communicating with global refugee networks.
