PERCEPTIONS in the Congress “Migration in Focus”

The Euro-Arab Foundation participated this Thursday in the congress “Migration in focus: addressing informational challenges in humanitarian actions” organized by the project H2020 MIRROR (Migration-Related Risks Caused by Misconceptions of Opportunities and Requirement) that takes place on December 15 and 16 in Malta. The congress focuses on information gaps in the formulation and implementation of public policies aimed at migrants.

The Migration in Focus conference, organized under the umbrella of the EU-funded project MIRROR, seeks to act as an interactive platform fostering debate on the most challenging and novel issues in the field of migration. The main focus of the conference is identifying novel ways to fill in “informational gaps” in formulating and deploying policies and humanitarian responses targeting migrants. As such the organizers are seeking contributions aimed at identifying good practices and tools that have positively contributed to enhancing knowledge in this field as well as studies on existing gaps and persistent challenges.

In relation to the protection of human rights and migration, Patricia Bueso and Jose María González Riera, FUNDEA researchers, have presented “Recommendations and insights of practitioners’ practice”, focusing on the case of Morocco to point out good practices and recommendations for a better protection of the human rights of migrants. The information comes from the field work that the Euro-Arab Foundation has carried out in Morocco in the framework of the PERCEPTIONS project. In this task, migrants and professionals related to the migration sector were interviewed.
