In the mid-80`s, significant restrictions were introduced into German asylum law. Due to these changes, people persecuted for political, ethnic or religious grounds encountered great difficulties in securing lasting and reliable protection. For this reason, the National Working Group PRO ASYL formed in 1986, out of which the Friends of PRO ASYL emerged. The National Working Group, comprised of refugee councils, churches, unions as well as welfare and human rights organizations, have come together to protect refugees rights and to give voice to their concerns.
