Know Your Rights (KYR). G. Carotenuto briefly introduced the program, run by DLA Piper in partnership with PBI and CILD, which officially started on 19th September and will end on 21st November. L. Liboni (CILD) presented the different steps and purposes thereof, by pointing out that 32 refugees and asylum seekers from different parts of the world and with very different educational backgrounds, are currently receiving training on different areas of the law. A trainee at DLA Piper for the KYR program, Zeyneb Nuri Hamid, also intervened, and so did some of the mentors belonging to PBI’s network (G. Albè, M. Pollavini, P. Circosta).
