This GA on ‘building a Europe for All’, gave a particular attention to the topic of migration. The first day of the GA was dedicated to a conference on the situation of poverty and exclusion amongst migrants in the European Union.
Cyprus, as one of the frontline EU Member States receiving migrants who take huge personal risks to try and seek out a better life, was considered as a very suitable place inspire EAPN’s discussions on that topic.
EAPN’s GA took place at the mid-point of the European Year for Combating Poverty and Social Exclusion and a week before the crucial European Council to decide on the poverty-reduction target in the Europe 2020 Strategy.
