15 - 16/05/2018

Today, more than a million refugees live in Europe, but their voices are not heard.

The G-100 Conference is a refugee-led initiative aimed at creating a dialogue between refugees, EU citizens and policy makers in various levels of decision-making processes.

In Brussels, we will address two pertinent issues:

????????️ Democracy // The importance of considering the voice of refugees, while drawing policies aiming to facilitate refugees’ integration in the European societies where they are living.

????‍????????‍???? Higher Education // The challenges facing refugees on their way to higher education in Belgium.

We will be joined by:

???? Laura Corrado, Head of Unit for Migration and Integration, European Commission
???? Monica De Coninck, Belgian MP 
???? Enrique Guerrero Salom, S&D MEP and Global Progressive ForumPresident
???? Véronique Jamoulle, Belgian MP, Senator and Auderghem Local Councillor
???? MEP Josef Weidenholzer, S&D Vice-President and Member of the LIBE Committee of the European Parliament
???? Henriette Stoeber, Policy and Project officer, European University Association

The debate will be presented by Jack Parrock, Brussels Bureau Chief, Feature Story News.

The event follows a workshop that took place on March 18th, where refugees, local citizens, university students, professionals and experts debated new ideas and thoughts and cohesively worked to create concrete policy recommendations.

For G-100, the voices of refugees need to be a part of finding solutions. We believe this interaction and intersection of dialogues is where change is birthed.
