International conference: Solidarity with Refugees in our Past and in our Future

International conference: Solidarity with Refugees in our Past and in our Future

24/09/2021 - 24/09/2021

Solidarity is at the heart of the cooperation between the 27 Member States of the European Union. The values of rule of law, human rights, solidarity and justice are not abstract and distant; they are a binding part of EU legislation and the national legislation of EU Member States. Today, though, we are seeing a lack of mutual solidarity and ruthless political exploitation when it comes to asylum and migration in Central Europe.

As a result of this, the Organization for Aid to Refugees (OPU) in Prague is organising an international conference to identify the ways in which Central European states (and others) can contribute to more just and solidary responses by the European Union towards people seeking protection across Europe.

6th European Migration Forum meeting

27/10/2021 - 28/10/2022

The 6th meeting of the European Migration Forum will take place online on 27-28 October 2021, having been previously cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The topic of this year's edition is From pandemic to recovery: challenges and best practices in migration management.

The forum is a platform for dialogue between civil society and the European institutions on issues relating to migration, asylum and the integration of third-country nationals (TCNs), and is run by the European Commission (EC) and the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC). 

This edition of the forum will focus on the indispensable role and value of migrants working in sectors that have been instrumental in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, and whose contribution to smooth economic recovery will be essential. Specific focuses will include the ways in which the pandemic has impacted migrants' lives and rights; how to close the digital divide and digital disadvantage of migrants; good practices and initiatives fostering access to education for migrant children; safe legal pathways for those in need of international protection and how to maximise their integration in hosting societies.

Expressions of interest in participation in the event can be submitted until 3 September 2021. Find further information on this here.
