Organised by the CPMR and Attiki Region and hosted by the Committee of the Regions

This high-level conference was designed to raise the attention of institutions on the need for multi-level governance and the added value of regional and local authorities for more effective results.

During the meeting, the discussion focused on the implementation of the 2015 EU Agenda on migration, the recast Common European Asylum System and the external dimension of migration policies, highlighted experiences and visions related to reception and integration of migrants and refugees, as well as cooperation actions.

In this sense, the event involved speakers from local and regional authorities, EU Institutions and other key stakeholders, and include the presentation of the CPMR Issue paper on “Migration and Asylum in EU Regions” approved by the CPMR Political Bureau (Patras, Western Greece, 8/3/2018).
