ALPS advises the South African Human Rights Commission ahead of the National Hearing on Social Cohes
On 7 and 8 February 2018, the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) held a two-day national hearing on social cohesion and xenophobia. It invited government, civil society and concerned individuals to contribute comments on issues and interventions pertaining to the social inclusion of migrants in South Africa.
ALPS Resilience, along with several other commenters, advised the SAHRC to challenge the Refugee Amendment Bill [B12-2016] and pressure the South African government to implement its National Action Plan to Combat Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance.
