“The protection of asylum seekers, refugees and migrants – Lessons learnt from the recent crisis and perspectives for coordinated action of international organisations”
International Conference in Nafplion (Greece), 27-28 May 2016
As the summer begins and new waves of refugees are expected to reach Europe’s shores to seek protection, and while we witness the chaotic implementation of the EU-Turkey deal, this event offered a platform for urgently needed discussions on a solution through international coordination and cooperation. The conference was attended by several high-level representatives of the CoE, including Secretary General Thorbjørn Jagland, and Special Representative of the Secretary General on Migration and Refugees Tomáš Boček.
