By the end of 2016, approximately 5.2 million refugees and migrants had arrived in Europe, having made perilous voyages from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, and other war-torn nations. This difficult trip was the end for some. Since 2015, many have died or gone missing, and a rising number of women and unaccompanied children have embarked on risky trips in search of protection.

The migration influx phenomenon came to the surface once more, since the Russian invasion to Ukraine caused the displacement of more than 6.6 million Ukrainians. This emergency needs to be tackled under a pan-European cooperation.

11 professionals from Italy visited IASIS NGO to exchange practices and ideas on best integration strategies and during their study visit we presented our state-of-the-art European project DREAMM.
