ARC Foundation was incorporated in December 2016 with the following object:
For the public benefit, to undertake research into human rights violations around the world, to promote respect for people’s rights, to contribute to the sound administration of asylum law, to provide technical advice and training to governments and others on human rights matters, and to raise awareness of human rights issues (as set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the United Nations Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and subsequent United Nations, European Union, African Union and Inter-American conventions, and related domestic legislative instruments). ARC Foundation’s research will particularly help to improve standards in refugee status determination processes, the realisation of asylum seekers’ and refugees’ rights and entitlements and ensure that those in need of protection are recognised as such.
