11 April 2016, Centre for International Relations, Ljubljana
On 11 April 2016, a workshop on handling the refugee crisis was organised in Ljubljana by Centre for International Relations (CIR), University of Ljubljana. At the event, a set of questions concerning the crisis were being discussed with political representatives, members of humanitarian and civil society organisations, media and academia. Based on the debate, a national report was drafted by Maja Bučar and Marko Lovec from CIR.
The workshop is a part of the collaborative project “Cross-border Cooperation in the Refugee Crisis”, coordinated by Austrian Society for European Politics (ÖGfE). Other partners in the project include organisations from Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia. The presentation of inter-mediate results of the project will take place on 9 June 2016 in Vienna.
The project is expected to deliver a joint policy study and recommendations on how to improve cross-border cooperation in dealing with the current and future crises.
Maja Bučar and Marko Lovec from Centre for International Relations (CIR) also took part in the kick-off meeting for collaborative study on Mapping Migration Challenges in the EU Transit and Destination Countries, 15 April 2016, EuroMeSco, Brussels.
