Remittance flows have increased five-fold over the past twenty years, but COVID-19 has been a formidable test for global remittances.

Practice Areas

Roya Institute works on a global scale, with attention to local particularities. Roya is presently directing its efforts to West Asia, and the priorities that inform its work are as below:

Law Clinics

"Roya" plans and strives to expand the academic law clinics, promote the culture of Probono's legal services, and Street Law programs. We see these measures and initiatives as tools to enhance the professional skills of the law community. Also, to facilitate public access to justice and human rights.

Sustainable Development

"Roya" strives for a kind of economic growth, welfare, and social justice, to be compatible with the environment and future generations; That is, "sustainable development." The UN SDGs reflect the basic standards of this process. "Roya" tries to promote and achieve those goals.

Rights of Persons with Disabilities

Efforts to prevent disability and measures from reducing the suffering of the world's 15% population, who suffer from a form of physical or mental disability, need to be improved. "Roya" participates in these necessary and immediate actions; Including trying to raise public awareness and focus on accessibility.

Educational Justice

The development of "educational justice" is one of the fundamental goals of "Roya." Some of its plans are to achieve necessary availability opportunities and grounds for all people to have an education (in the formal and free system) with quality and tailored to their individual and social talents and needs.

Fighting Discrimination

Discrimination- on any grounds and justification- is incompatible with justice; "Roya" fights against this. A number of our programs are designed to improve situations where people with equal roles and conditions do not enjoy the same social benefits based on non-acquired criteria (such as gender or skin color).

Refugees

More than seventy million people worldwide have fled their homes: refugees from war, conflict, and harassment; Asylum seekers; Displaced people within their own countries. "Roya" strives to draw global attention to the protection of asylum seekers, especially those displaced by climate change.
