“Cities of Rights: Ensuring Health Care for Undocumented Migrants”

The Platform for International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants (PICUM) published a new report entitled “Cities of Rights: Ensuring Health Care for Undocumented Migrants”, which reveals how cities in Europe are providing access to health care to those who are not eligible to benefit from public health systems. Many cities in Europe are filling this gap because they realise the importance of good health for social cohesion and public health in general.

Europe's New Refugees: A Road Map for Better Integration Outcomes

This report by the McKinsey Global Institute entitled "Europe's New Refugees: A Road Map for Better Integration Outcomes" argues that Europe should ensure that refugees are integrated into the labour market, as well as society, so that the potential and benefits of migration are maximised. To arrive to this arguement, the report explains the factors that shaped individual journeys of this new group of refugees, and then outlines the important role of the EU in harmonising their response to this population of people.
