How should Europeans respond to the Global Refugee Crisis?

Jan 11, 2016 · Greater London, United Kingdom

Join us to discuss the refugee crisis and Detention Centres in a meeting in the House of Commons hosted by David Burrowes MP
David Burrowes MP has agreed to host a meeting in the House of Commons with GlobalNet21 and The New Europeans on the plight of the refugees settling in Europe and the human rights issues around the use of Dentition Centres.
This meeting is being held in collaboration with the New Europeans and you can find their facebook page here ....

The world has developed into a more unsettled place than it was at the end of the last century, War and conflicts, resource shortages and extreme weather has resulted in movements of population in different parts of the globe.
In Europe this is now a major issue facing many countries with hundreds of thousands of people on the move. It is raising many issues about accommodation, integration and human rights.

David Burrowes is a Member of Parliament who has been deeply concerned with the human rights of people who are refugees both in terms of their settlement and also the sometimes inhuman conditions of their detention. David has long campaigned for the rights of refugees and for their fair treatment.He says,
"While there is a need to properly control our borders, people who arrive by fair means or foul must also be treated with dignity and respect throughout the immigration process. The current system is failing to sufficiently do this."
This meeting will discuss the issue of migration and the plight of refugees and how we approach what will be a growing problem in a compassionate and humane way. Other speakers are,

In association with this meeting we are working with a European funded project called Kuorum.org that exists to bring European politicians in closer contact with citizens by posting on their site a campaign issue or project of a European legislator with copy and a video and then asking citizens across Europe to respond to this. The MPs office will then update the information. David Burrowes agreed to take part in this on this very topic and we have already interviewed him and the material is all up on site.
You can see it at https://kuorum.org/immigrationR
This meeting is also being supported and promoted by the London Debate Network and you can find their meetup site here. Students from London Metropolitan University will also be joining us and supporting us at this meeting as well.
