The Salvation Army
This year’s network meeting will focus on integrated approaches to migrants’ inclusion, including pathways to the labour market, access to affordable quality social services (including housing) and social participation.
The purpose of the meeting is to provide a forum for members to share experiences and good practice, identify the challenges they face as well as discuss potential solutions and opportunities for development. This includes discussing what political strategies have been so far successful in fostering an integrated approach to integration.
The meeting will include a study visit to Foyer Selah, a reception center for asylum seekers run by the Belgian Salvation Army, as well as a conference with our partner PICUM (Platform for International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants) in the European Parliament, which will address the political dimension of labour market integration of undocumented migrants, refuges and migrants.
The meeting is open to all those working in Diaconia who are part of a network or organisation that is a member of Eurodiaconia. People who are likely to find it most interesting would be those working in the provision of services to migrants and refugees, as well as directors of institutions or organisations interested in developing their work with migrants and refugees.
