The history of Pro Asyl

In November 1985
the former representative of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Germany, René van Rooyen met with Dr.Jürgen Micksch of the Evangelical Academy Tutzing. The cause for their meeting was to prepare the foundation of an organisation which would effectively represent the rights of persons persecuted on account of their race, religion or political opinion: Pro Asyl.

In September 1986..
the working group Pro Asyl was founded in Frankfurt/Main. From the beginning, the representative of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees was to be a permanent advisor to Pro Asyl.

Pro Asyl is established as an organisation in which the executive members of the registered society possess a seat and thus a vote. The organisation Pro Asyl is hence constituted of representatives of national refugee initiatives, of individuals associated e.g. with the church or trade unions, as well as of the executive of the (registered) society.
