CODA – Centro Operativo per il Diritto all’Asilo

The general aim is to defend the asylum seekers from the illegal acts of public administration in Rome ad to improve the level of rights guaranteed to asylum-seekers and refugees in Italy (and in Rome in particular) as far as actual procedures are concerned by preparing and filing legal pilot-cases;
The pilot-cases serve to raise awareness among policy makers, national, international and European institutions and public opinion about the risks that a large discretionary power in the hands of public officials in charge of procedures regarding fundamental rights like international protection can lead to negative effects for the rights of asylum-seekers, and attempt to contain this discretionary power.

These pilot-cases aim to facilitate the approval of legislative changes to the actual legal framework where possible.
