Getting to grips with the refugee crisis: a Permanent Relocation Mechanism under the Dublin System
19 February, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
The European Parliament office in the UK is pleased to invite you to the event ‘Getting to grips with the refugee crisis: a Permanent Relocation Mechanism under the Dublin System’, which will be held at Europe House, 32 Smith Square, London on Friday, 19th February 2016 from 11 am.
EU citizens are seeing at first hand how the 2008 Dublin system has been straining to cope with the unprecedented number of asylum seekers and migrants striving to reach the European Union. To tackle this humanitarian crisis and help those Member States that are struggling with it the most, the Commission has presented a ‘Permanent Relocation Mechanism’ to complement the Dublin regulation.
The discussion on the legislative proposal will be led by MEP Timothy Kirkhope, member of the Civil Liberties Committe and rapporteur on the ‘Permanent Relocation Mechanism’. It will also include a delegate from the Commission, an academic, an international reporter, and an NGO representative – all with extensive knowledge of asylum and migration issues.
A full list of speakers to be announced soon.
