Open call for interest to participate in the third European Migration Forum on 2-3 March 2017

Thursday, 17 November, 2016

The European Commission and the European Economic and Social Committee are launching the call for interest to participate to the 3rd meeting of the European Migration Forum, which will take place in Brussels on 2-3 March 2017.

The European Migration Forum is a platform for dialogue between civil society and the European institutions on issues related to migration, asylum and integration of third-country nationals.

The 3rd Forum will focus on the topic of ACCESS: Migrants' access to the EU, to rights and to services. The meeting will allow for a discussion on safe legal alternatives to the perilous journeys migrants undertake, as well as a reflection on the way migrants can access services upon their arrival, together with the rights to which they are entitled to, and how to ensure continuation of such provisions to facilitate their integration process. Moreover, an underlining theme will be that of communication and the media – changing the current narrative on migration.

To apply, please fill in this online form no later than 12 December 2016.
