Launch of Publication “A Welcoming Europe”
On International Migrants Day, Justice and Peace Netherlands will be launching its joint publication “A Welcoming Europe: Exploring Local Solidarity with Refugees Across Europe”.
Combining inputs from nine countries across Europe, this publication will share examples of local solidarity that provide alternative solutions to the challenges we see in asylum policies today.
A product of the Working Group on Forced Migration and Human Rights, the publication would like to thank the representatives of the Justice and Peace Europe commissions of Austria, Czech Republic, Greece, Malta, Scotland, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
The publication will be available for download December 18th, 2017.
