Faith-based support for young people seeking refuge

The Agency took part in the expert workshop ‘Educating to Understand the Other: Faith-Based Support for Young People Seeking Refuge’ from 12 to 13 December in Vienna.

The workshop was jointly organised by KAICIID and the European Commission representation in Austria. It was an opportunity to better understand the issues surrounding the provision of religious education and interreligious experience for young people seeking refuge. By analysing the perspectives and needs of young people, the participants identified best practices as well as gaps and challenges in meeting these needs with the aim to set programmatic and policy recommendations for relevant national and international institutions.
