On 2 February 2017 a new CSF Migration Working Group was established at the General Assembly in Helsinki. CSF Migration Working Group members decided that Balint Josa from UNITED for Intercultural Action Budapest will be the coordinator of this group with Natalia Zviagina from Human Rights House in Voronezh as a co-coordinator.

We are still open to other members of the Forum to join the working group.

We also created a list of potential topics to work on in the next years. The idea is to chose a topic or some topics and work on it together:

  • icon

    The rule of law in asylum detention centres in the EU and Russia;

  • icon

    Integration tests compared in the EU and Russia;

  • icon

    Vulnerable groups: children/women;

  • icon

    Unaccompanied minors -especially the disappearance of youngsters from asylum centres due to trafficking;

  • icon

    Migrants (social) entrepreneurship;

  • icon

    Narrative: the EU migration policy explained for the Russian public;

  • icon

    Bridging the gap between academic research (on migration) and NGO;

  • icon

    Rise of populist groups/hate crimes/hate speech;

  • icon

    Integration of Refugees to welcoming countries;

  • icon

    Access to Healthcare (on the way, at the country).

Thank you for your committed cooperation to move the topic further!
