APNOR is a network of refugee-led groups established in 2018. APNOR’s objective is to build a sustainable and inclusive network for refugee-led organizations in the Asia Pacific region, to set the regional agenda for refugee policy that draws on the collective voice of lived experience to influence stakeholder and decision-making priorities, and to support the development of stronger national refugee-led structures that can influence national policy reform.

Overview

The National E-Hubs act as potent platforms where refugee voices are amplified and local talents are empowered to spearhead positive change in their communities.

To further this mission, we are seeking two dynamic E-Hub Coordinators to play a pivotal role in the establishment and nurturing of five new National E-Hubs in various countries. These coordinators will be integral in molding APNOR’s “Asia’s change maker community,” actively contributing to the engagement and empowerment strategies within the refugee communities.
