Refugee Series: Arrival in Europe - An Immersion Journey to Sicily or Greece

Location: Sicily or Greece


A three-day visit to either Sicily or Greece to understand the process migrants face on arrival in Europe seeking refugee status. This immersion journey will explore the challenges facing Europe as it deals with growing numbers of migrants arriving, many genuine refugees, some seeking economic opportunities. We will explore the range of organisations, institutions and policies overseeing this process, understand the growing dilemmas facing the European continent and explore what more could be done with strategic investment of private philanthropic capital.
