We believe the humanitarian crises and detrimental situation unfolding across Europe require a strategic and long-term advocacy approach and sustained pressure from civil society actors.

That’s why we’re working to hold policy makers to account and ensure that human rights remain high on the agenda, rather than focusing on short-term alleviation of suffering through a never-ending cycle of aid.

We aim to bring about concrete change in four critical European locations, where the refugee response has had a particularly detrimental effect on human lives.

Beyond change on the ground in these locations, we are working for wider, structural reforms of the asylum systems across Europe through advocacy work at the European Union level.
