Scalabrinians on the front line on the “High-level Meeting on Large Movements of Refugees & Migrants” New York – United Nations Headquarters, September 19, 2016

SEP 14 2016 by SIMN

“The outcome document that will be considered by member states in the High Level Summit falls short of creating a new framework for the protection of refugees and migrants around the world.” That is the thought expressed, already at the beginning of August, by the Scalabrini International Migration Network (SIMN) together with the Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS). Their goal is that the “High Level Summit on Large Movements of Refugees and Migrants”, planned by the United Nations in New York on September 19, and related meetings called by the United States on the same sideline, on September 20, can give concrete answers to the delicate subject.

Comunicato stampa: Scalabriniani in prima linea nel “VII Incontro di alto livello sui vasti movimenti di rifugiati e migranti” New York – Palazzo delle Nazioni Unite, 19 Settembre 2016

SEP 14 2016 by SIMN

Il documento finale approvato che sarà preso in esame dagli stati membri nel prossimo Incontro di Alto Livello è carente nella creazione di un nuovo quadro per la protezione dei rifugiati e dei migranti in tutto il mondo”. Così si è espresso, già ad inizio di agosto, lo Scalabrini International Migration Network (SIMN) insieme al Centro di Studi Migratori di New York (CMS). L’obiettivo delle due entità scalabriniane è che il “VII High-level Meeting on large movements of refugees & migrants” previsto a New York sul tema dalle Nazioni Unite il 19 settembre, e gli incontri successivi voluti dagli Stati Uniti a margine dello stesso, il giorno 20, arrivino a dare risposte concrete al delicato tema.

JUN 23 2016 by SIMN

On World Refugee Day 2016, the Scalabrini International Migration Network (SIMN) renews its commitment to work with governments, international organizations, and civil society, including refugee protection agencies, to protect refugees and their families worldwide. 

With 65.3 million people displaced in the world in 2015—the most since World War II--  collaboration and shared responsibility between governments of countries of origin, transit and destination, with support from international organizations and civil society, are urgently needed to save lives and give our brothers and sisters the opportunity to rebuild their lives.  Moreover, the world community should not tolerate the loss of life we see in the Mediterranean, where over 10,000 human beings seeking refuge in Europe have died.
