D2uble Penalty 2017 – FoRB of refugees in Europe
On Wednesday 31st May, the European Evangelical Alliance organised, as part of The Refugee Campaign, a hearing in the European Parliament: “D2uble Penalty: Refugees and freedom of religion or belief”.
The event was co-hosted by Messrs Branislav Škripek & Lars Adaktusson, Members of the European Parliament.
50 participants attended the hearing session, included some Members of the European Parliament and their office. This was the occasion to raise awareness on the double penalty refugees from religious minorities experience when arriving in Europe: harassment and persecution in camps after fleeing violence in their home country. And also to discuss policy challenges and recommendations.
