Tid og sted
05. maj 2022 14.00 – 15.30
Bruxelles, Rue de la Loi 75, 1000 Bruxelles, Belgium
This side event will address the impact of Denmark’s latest changes in the refugee policies and considering some regions of Syria as “safe” on refugees in Denmark, but also to all Syrian refugees in every place, either those in the region who already suffer on several levels from a wide range of push factors, or those in EU who are afraid of the “domino effect” that might jeopardise their (relatively) stable residence in the EU.
It will also discuss the necessity and the option of having a monitoring mechanism to document violations against refugees, and returnees, which guarantee the inclusion of local civil society, media groups, and affected groups themselves, and which create a baseline for hosting countries to build their policies.
