 Migrant Voice - EU 2010 Conference On Migration

Ending poverty amongst migrants was the main focus of a conference organised by the European Anti Poverty Network (EAPN) in Cyprus on the 10-12 June 2010.  The conference was attended by more than 150 delegates from 27 European countries which included high level EU officials and Cypriot ministers. Migrant Voice presented the situation on Migrants in the UK on behalf of EAPN UK. Cyprus, as one of the frontline EU Member States receiving migrants who take huge personal risks to flee persecution and try and seek out a better life, was considered as a very suitable place to inspire EAPN’s discussions on that topic. The conference was part of the EAPN’s General Assembly that took place at the mid-point of the European Year for Combating Poverty and Social Exclusion and a week before the crucial European Council decision on the poverty-reduction target in the Europe 2020 Strategy.
