On Monday, 3rd July our second Sister-led dialogue of 2023 will address the needs and challenges of migrants and refugees, with a particular focus on children and adolescents.
Migration is, and always has been, an integral part of the human experience. At UISG, we believe the international community has a responsibility to provide assistance to all migrants and refugees, guarantee the full respect of their rights, and facilitate their integration within host communities.
Accordingly, three thematic areas have been identified to structure the conversation:
- Root causes of migration in a global economy
- Humanitarian assistance and human rights
- Integral human development and social cohesion
For each of the topics identified, the following aspects will be explored:
- Research findings
- Grassroots experience
- Challenges, needs and opportunities, both globally and for specific realities
