The Agency and the Committee of the Regions will hold their 8th Annual Dialogue on how local authorities can contribute to fighting discrimination and intolerance that affect the right to education of refugee children.
The meeting will take place in Brussels on 24 November. Local and regional authorities are key actors to facilitate and provide education for migrants, displaced people, refugees and stateless children. Non-discrimination plays a central role in enabling migrant children’s access to education. The meeting will explore how local authorities could support access to education for refugee children, and share experiences and best practice locally.
The Agency will present its recent data and expertise in the area of asylum-seeking children and migrant children more broadly, building on its monthly overviews of migration-related fundamental rights concerns. Since 2009, the Annual Dialogue has been a platform to discuss fundamental rights themes of relevance regionally and locally, and to share knowledge of existing fundamental rights good practices.
