Recognising that migration is an overall reality in society today, and aware that migration is posing challenges to societies, political institutions and churches, CEC and CCME are planning a European Year of Churches focussing on migration. During this year, churches activities for migration and integration, asylum and refugees and against racism and discrimination shall be made more visible through joint activities, a joint calendar of meetings and at least four regional meetings. The study “Mapping Migration in Europe – Mapping Churches’ Responses” provides a starting point.
The European Year of churches responding to migration 2010 shall also assist churches to share their good experience, to strengthen existing work, and to identify possible new areas of work to become more effective in pursuing the aims of inclusive societies in Europe and welcoming the strangers.
