Today the 12th of March, the Greek Forum of Refugees attended the meeting with the European Commissioner for Migration and Home Affairs, Mr Ilva Johansson. Our association was represented by the President of the Board of Directors, Mr. Jean Didier Toto Tom-Ata.
The meeting was materialized under the prism of a constructive conversation between the Commissioner and representatives of the civil society organizations in order to receive proposals concerning the situation and conditions relating to the refugee and migrant issues, especially regarding the latest events that transpired in Greece.
The President of the Greek Forum of Refugees highlighted the need to re-launch the conversation regarding the National Strategy for the inclusion and integration of refugees and migrants into both the Greek and the European society, pointing out the initial National Strategy on Inclusion that had begun on the twilight of the previous government’s administration.
Mr Totow proposed to the European Commission’ s representative to bring the issue back on the table, in view of her meeting with both the General Secretariat for Immigration Policy, Reception and Asylum and the leadership of the government.
