On Friday 27 January we organised a colloquy between refugee-led organisations and Government. The event was a joint effort between Aditus Foundation, African Media Association (Malta) and Spark15, part of the project 2incING. After so many months of virtual conversations, the colloquy was a needed face to face conversation about important integration themes: documentation, education, citizenship, political participation. As such, it was an important forum bringing refugees, migrants and Government to the integration table
It was an extremely fruitful exchange. Led by African Media and Spark15, the meeting was attended by representatives of the Government’s Human Rights Directorate, NCPE, UNHCR, IOM, ECRE and most local NGOs working with refugees and migrants. Our priority for this colloquy was that it be refugee- and migrant- led in terms of the agenda, priorities, tone, forum and structure.
We’re happy to announce our participation in an exciting project that will represent an added focus on migrant-led advocacy. Following from our Erasmus+ project, where we are developing a training kit for refugee led organisations, the 2inING project will continue our work in supporting the growth and empowerment of migrant- and refugee-led groups.
The main aim of this Comparative Report on the Status of Refugee-led Community Organisations (RCOs) is to provide a contribution to the project’s formulation of a training kit that supports the establishment and strengthening of such organisations.
