The event is organised in the context of the COMECE’s call to “put Human dignity and Common Good at the centre of the future negotiations of the EU Pact on Migration and Asylum”, which was proposed by the European Commission in September 2020.

The event aims to raise voices of migrants, asylum seekers and hosting communities and to listen to the problems they faced on the ground and how they overcame them.

Among the speakers: Mathieu and Arlette, who will share some of their testimonies as migrants and representatives of the hosting communities, Fr. Manuel Barrios Prieto and Prof. Jan De Volder, General Secretaries of respectively COMECE and Comunità di Sant’Egidio Europe, MEPs Javier Zarzalejos (EPP) and Damian Boeselager (Greens), and Dr. Alkisti Alevropulou-Mali, academic and freelance humanitarian photographer.
