RISE: Refugees’ Ideas and Solutions for Europe
Duration August 2016 to March 2018
Fund “The project RISE is part of Advocate Europe, the European idea challenge by MitOst in cooperation with Liquid Democracy, funded by Stiftung Mercator”
RISE attempts to change the current situation of refugees in Europe by empowering refugees and migrants across Europe, which will hold consultations by collecting the main issues and challenges they are facing in Europe. Based on these consultation sessions and exchange workshops in different European countries, RISE will elaborate policy recommendations that will be disseminated by social medias and official channels, with main goal to influence the EU policy discussion. RISE is an opportunity to strengthen refugees’ and migrants’ voices at national and European level and to reveal their potential as knowledgeable and experienced partners.
