EU-Pact on Asylum and Migration – 2023
UNITED for Intercultural Action started cooperating with five other European non-governmental institutions from Germany, Italy, Croatia, Poland and Portugal to work on a project on the EU-Pact on Asylum and Migration.
All the NGOs involved, them being BORDERLINE-EUROPE, MENSCHENRECHTE OHNE GRENZEN VEREIN (GER), Borderline Sicilia Onlus (IT), Association “PANK – Active Independent Creative’s Platform” (CR), STOWARZYSZENIE INTERWENCJI PRAWNEJ (PL), HUBB – HUMANS BEFORE BORDERS ASSOCIATION (PO) and UNITED for Intercultural Action (HUN) have consolidated to work together towards the pact on Asylum and migration from a human rights perspective. All organisations bring their experience and range in their home countries which will help the civilian society to obtain a more comprehensible basis in order to engage more in the public discussion and process themselves.
This close cooperation made it possible to gain an insight into the complexity of the decision-making process and the contradictions and supported the goal of promoting national and transnational civil society structures and activities.
The individual NGOs were closely following the specific discussion process in their respective countries as well as at the European level and constantly exchanging information and insights with the other partners. Eventually the results were presented in public statements, on various social media channels and during events.
In March 2022 UNITED hosts the Human Rights Fair, an event created in order for the civil sector to be able to meet the decision makers. For this purpose we invited politicians and representatives of institutions to discuss the future of Hungary and Human Rights with a special focus on the EU-Asylum-Pact and spread information about the specific role of Hungary in the EU-migration agenda, as well as the relevance of the civil society activities in times of populism and national egoism. UNITED also helped to organise other webinars and conferences in the partner countries.
