The Agency will give a presentation at the European Asylum Support Office’s Consultative Forum Regional Thematic Meeting on ‘EASO Operations: Lessons Learned’ on 29 September in Trapani, Italy.
The aim of the meeting is to strengthen cooperation between EASO and local NGOs working in the hotspots in Trapani. More specifically, the meeting aims to provide information on EASO's operational activities, review the implementation of relocation and the hotspot approach in Italy, identify what has worked well and what can be improved, and discuss the future development of EASO support activities in Italy, including its relocation and the hotspot approach.
The main target audience are local NGOs and local organisations involved in hotspot activities. FRA presentation will take place in the connection with the discussion on ‘implementation of relocation and the hotspot approach in practice’ and will focus on fundamental rights challenges, in particular looking at people with vulnerability and unaccompanied children.
