Expert Meeting Ahead of European Policy Dialogue Forum Focuses on the Needs of Young Refugees

Youth unemployment, access to affordable and quality education, and disengagement from political and cultural life are urgent challenges facing young refugees in Europe, participants heard at an expert meeting ahead of the fifth European Policy Dialogue Forum.

The event gathered 25 representatives from intergovernmental organizations and academic institutions, as well as youth delegates and religious actors. It was hosted by the International Dialogue Centre (KAICIID) and the Network for Dialogue in partnership with the European Council of Religious Leaders/Religions for Peace Europe (ECRL/RfP Europe) and with the support of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR). The meeting forms part of the preparatory process for the annual Forum which will be held in Ghent later this year.
