9. December 2020 @ 17:00 - 19:00
On Wednesday, December 9, at 5 pm, the last online panel of the initiative “From the Seat to the City” (#Sea2City) will take place. The HVGP is a founding member of the #Sea2City-Initiative, which has been organizing panel discussions on the demands of the initiative since July. The #Sea2City event “Regroup, Rethink, React: Practical solutions to promote and implement human rights based migration policies.” will take place in online format. Please register HERE for participation!
On the panel “Regroup, Rethink, React: Practical solutions to promote and implement human rights based migration policies”, Annalisa Camilli (journalist), Muhammad al-Kashef (Human Rights lawyer and Migration Researcher, a member of Watch the Med Alarmphone), Jorge Nuno (Refugee Service Portugal), Mathieu Garabedian (Villeurbanne France) and Clare Daly (member of the European Parliament) will participate. The event will be moderated by Laura Colini (URBACT). The current challenges for refugees during the COVID-19 pandemic will be discussed. The COVID-19 crisis put into sharp relief the importance of guaranteeing access to information, adequate shelter and housing, and healthcare services in order to secure the lives of individuals and the community. The pandemic highlighted a disproportionate threat for the most vulnerable, who had to comply with lockdown orders often sleeping rough and lacking basic levels of hygiene. Finally, the pandemic compromised the ability to work for many categories, particularly hitting those with precarious employment. A job and a house are essential prerequisites to gain residence permits and hence a proper access to fundamental rights. Starting from these three words “health”, “shelter” and “work”, this panel will explore current constraints and practical solutions to promote and implement human rights based migration policies.
