Migration & Asylum

Migration and asylum are human rights issues. Frequently, individuals and families leave their places of origin or residence seeking an improvement in their living conditions or simply fleeing violence or war. The current scale of the phenomenon at the EU borders is worrying, as are the tragedies and deaths that result from the desperation of migrants, many of them victims of criminal activities of smugglers and traffickers. Integration of migrants and asylum seekers is also a challenge.

The COMECE Secretariat works for the rights of migrants, refugees and their families in hosting societies to be harmonised and respected in the EU for the sake of the common good in the Christian spirit of welcoming the stranger.

COMECE is assisted in this mission by the Commission on Migration and Asylum.
