Today is World Refugee Day

On June 20, we celebrate World Refugee Day as an expression of empathy and solidarity with the plight of millions of people forced to flee their homelands due to conflict and persecution.

Today we want to remind that millions of people residing in the EU are deprived of the right to vote in their country of residence.

The establishment of Migrant Advisory Councils can serve as a powerful tool to address this issue and promote political participation among migrants and refugees in their host countries.

The Migrant Voices Heard project seeks to make the voices of migrants and refugees heard. The aim of the project is to promote the participation of refugees and migrants in the design and implementation of integration and related policies at the local, regional and national level.
