Just along the border – Europe of rights and Europe of walls
A conference on the EU policies on migration will be held on 24 October 2016 from 09:30 until 13:00 at the Conference Centre in the Piemonte pavilion at the International Training Centre of the ILO.
The refugee crisis with the many lives lost along the escape routes and its burden of human suffering, is putting considerable strain not only on the EU political awareness, but also on its own social and civil project, which is based on the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union (2001). In the last three years, the EU Member States have failed to adopt a collective and effective policy with regard to the increasing number of refugees escaping the countries close to the EU borders.
The conference, which will be held in Italian, has been organised by the International Training Centre of the ILO in collaboration with the Piedmont Regional Council – Regional Committee for Human Rights, and AICCRE, the Italian Association for the Council of European Municipalities and Regions. This event will be the occasion to discuss on the European policies on migration and asylum, their challenges and their impact on social communities.
