Caritas will present its Common Home publication at the European Parliament

On November 5, Caritas will launch a European-wide publication entitled Common Home: migration and development in Europe and beyond with a panel discussion at the European Parliament. The publication is based on a series of national Common Home publications, published by 11 European Caritas organizations, including Caritas Bulgaria.

The European report explores the complex connection between migration and development and aims at promoting a more balanced and evidence-based debate on migration and development, particularly at a time when migration has become a deeply contentious issue in Europe.

With this publication, the Caritas network wishes, to advocate for the promotion of laws, policies and structures that contribute to integral human development, foster solidarity and protect human rights and dignity across Europe and globally, leaving no one behind.

The event in the European Parliament aims to provide a platform for exchanging views on the topics of migration and development, as well as to discuss concrete barriers, opportunities and promising practices that have an impact on the role of migration in facilitating development processes and also have an impact on the EU’s commitment towards promoting sustainable development and protecting human dignity and human rights outside of Europe.

The publication „Common Home: migration and development in Europe and beyond is realized within the framework of the MIND initiative, funded by the European Union.
