Accie presents: Talk with the Special Envoy of the High Commissioner of the UNHCR for the central Mediterranean situation

Monday 5 April, 20:00 - 21:30

The European Commission has declared in 2019 that the migration crisis in the Mediterranean Sea has passed, but displaced people still continue to arrive. The UNHCR has been always present as a support structure for these people, helping them during the journey and when they arrive, with practical and bureaucratic support and much more.
Mr. Vincent Cochetel, has been working with the UNHCR since 1987, and since 2017 he has been appointed UNHCR’s Special Envoy for the Central Mediterranean Situation. He will join us to talk about the situation right now and future developments, hurdles and threats.
If you want to get acquainted with Mr. Cochetel before the lecture, you can watch his TEDx talk here.

You can join the Zoom call from 19:45 onwards, here.
