Description : Dialogue with others
According to the UNHCR and the IOM “Persecution, conflict and poverty have forced an unprecedented one
million people to flee to Europe in 2015. This process does not seem to slow down in 2016.
"As anti-foreigner sentiments escalate in some quarters, it is important to recognize the positive contributions
that refugees and migrants make to the societies in which they live and also honor core European values.
The project was born after a careful analysis of the changes in nowadays society due to the current
humanitarian crisis and the displacement of millions of people fleeing from their countries in search of better
life conditions. The project aims to collect good practices from partners from different EU countries, especially
those at the forefront in this humanitarian crisis: Italy, Turkey as countries of first arrival and Germany, UK and
Sweden as countries that most of the refugees see as final destination. Spain, on the other hand, even if
officially accepting to take refugees, is experiencing a standstill caused by Government inaction, to the point
that 11 of the 17 autonomous regions have recently urged the government to unlock necessary procedures.
