UNHCR, Kuwait Society of Lawyers sign deal

Kuwait: The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Kuwait and the Kuwait Society of Lawyers (KSL) inked a partnership deal on Tuesday to boost cooperation and share expertise on humanitarian and legal issues related to asylum and displacement. Speaking in a news statement, Nisreen Rubaian, UNHCR representative in Kuwait, said the agreement enhances legal consultation and services for free, adding that it shows the importance of cooperation between civil society organizations and specialized associations in Kuwait.

She commended efforts made to raise legal awareness and achieve social justice, which is one of the main pillars of this strategic partnership, and the keenness of society to boost collaboration through offering support to the UNHCR. Meanwhile, Adel Abul, deputy chairman of KSL, praised this cooperation to provide legal support and disseminate legal awareness among individuals. He hoped that the KSL would have social participation in legal fields. This is the first deal of its kind in Kuwait that will link humanitarian action to societal legal responsibility through legal support for persons that concern UNHCR.
