"European Migration: Causes and Effects" Dublin Summer School 2016

Green European Foundation hosted a Summer School in Dublin on the 27th and 28th of May, with the support of the Green Foundation Ireland.

This year's Summer School in Dublin focused on how civil society can manage migration and the attitudes towards it in a positive and constructive way, with a broader remit of linking migration to poverty and indeed to climate change and general Green issues. Furthermore, this event specifically addressed the situation in Ireland and its role as a Member State of the European Union in finding solutions to this humanitarian crisis.
