Vulnerabilities and protection of migrants

22 September 2016

On 22 September, the EUISS and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) co-organised a conference in Brussels on the protection of migrants. The aim of the event was to stimulate the debate on migrants’ vulnerabilities and to address the needs and challenges related to their protection in light of the current migration crisis.

The conference brought together more than 140 representatives from EU agencies (Frontex, ECRE, DG Migration and Home affairs as well as the EEAS). The UN and other international organisations, national and regional authorities, NGOs, think tanks, and academic institutions were also present.
