Monday 30  November, a roundtable on the refugee crisis & migration was held in Belgrade (Serbia).

During the event, different stakeholders reflected on the challenges and consequences of this sudden flow of refugees coming mainly from Northern Africa and the Middle East. Relevant speakers coming from different Serbian ministries attended the event, such as Mr. Nenad Ivanišević, from the Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social Policy, Mr. Ivan Bošnjak, from the Ministry of Public Administration and Local Self-Government, as well as Mr. Holger Schroeder, Head of Cooperation of the EU Delegation in Serbia, and representatives from other international organizations, Local Authorities and Civil Society Organizations of the region.

The roundtable was organized in the framework of the South East Europe (SEE) geographical path of the project LADDER.

It aims at linking this global issue with the local solutions from a DEAR perspective (Development Education and Awareness Raising), with the intention of involving all actors & stakeholders along with citizens.
