Migrants in Europe are considered by many to be the ‘safe’ and ‘lucky ones’. However, migrants in Europe are still vulnerable. One of the biggest drivers of this vulnerability is access to information. Our research has shown that migrants in refugee camps or government centres in Europe feel they have insufficient information to understand the processes they are in and the decisions they need to make.
Throughout 2016, Seefar worked in migrant camps in Europe to help migrants understand and work through their options and to understand changes to European government policy and what that meant for them. We provided information to more than 30,000 migrants in camps in Northern France.
