Il reconnait que dans chaque société, certains groupes de personnes vont probablement beaucoup plus souffrir de désavantages que d’autres ; tout comme il identifie aussi les racines profondes, et parfois non-mesurées des obstacles qui...

Finally, promising strategies being implemented in Europe to help integrate...

According to a new UNHCR report entitled “Desperate Journeys: Refugees and migrants entering and crossing Europe via the Mediterranean and Western Balkan Routes”, refugees and migrants face heightened risks when trying to reach Europe.
