QCEA HUMAN RIGHTS PROGRAMME
Thematic events take place in response to relevant EU policy discussions on human rights. Recent events include:
Human Rights and the EU's response to forced migration
This event brought EU officials, Member States and civil society together to develop a broader range of policy choices, beyond the military approach.
Care for child migrants - Ending child immigration detention together
Co-organised with two UN agencies and a CSO platform this event brought together Member States, with different parts of the EU system and civil society organisations. The event sought to build a new consenses, and identify agendas for change where there is common ground.
Co-organised with Quaker Peace and Social Witness - an agency of Quakers in Britian this conference brought over 100 people from across Europe to Brussels - to consider how we can build a continent where everyone is safe. Sanctuary is a familiar concept for people of faith. Sanctuary Everywhere unites our peace and human rights programmes, as we seek to build a world that cares for forced migrants, whilst addressing the roots causes of conflict, oppression, poverty and climate chaos - so that people shouldn't have to flee. Sanctuary Everywhere is more than migrant rights, but also about racial justice more broadly, equality for LGBTI+ people, safety for women, religious minorities and more.
This event bridged faith-based organizations working on peace and security in Brussels and enabled organizations to discuss the human rights and security situation of Crimean Tatars in Crimea.
This event will bring policy makers and civil society together to strategise ways forward.
