Come and join us on 6 November in Naples for an open Relaunching Europe debate on immigration and asylum, with a particular focus on the Mediterranean Sea – ’Mare Nostrum’ – and the impact of immigration on economy and society for the south of Europe.

Mass immigration is one of the most critical issues in the political, economic and social debates in Italy. Every year thousands of people risk their lives to cross the Mediterranean sea to reach European shores in search for a better life. Europe can no longer let southern European countries deal with this alone. It has to become a shared responsibility.

So what can Europe do? How can we stop human tragedies in the Mediterranean? What should our common migration and asylum policy look like? … Now it´s the time to listen to what you have to say!

Share your views with leading experts, academic, politicians and representatives of the civil society. We want to hear your thoughts and ideas so make sure you join. The debate will be moderated by Italian journalist and TV anchor Mia Ceran.

A ‘Bar Camp’ – an informal and dynamic workshop – will be organised from 16:30 until 17:30 prior to the event. It’s a great opportunity to warm up and brainstorm before the debate! Will you join?

The full programme of the evening will soon be available. The event will be followed by a buffet dinner and get-together with live DJ.

To help us organise the event, we kindly ask that you register for the event.
