UN human rights expert meeting seeks to promote inclusion and counter anti-migrant narratives

The Agency took part in an expert and multi-stakeholder meeting in Geneva on 11 May organised by the UN Human Rights Office on building partnerships to promote inclusion and counter anti-migrant narratives.

The Agency focused on the need to build on positive narratives supported by data and facts, dispelling myths, inaccuracies and misrepresentations of reality. Research and surveys by the Agency offer robust data about the real situation on the ground. They can support informed policy and public debates upholding human rights away from fear and demonization. They can also help encourage the active participation of migrants and their descendants in more cohesive EU societies.
