02 July 2012

Representatives from refugee and migrant organisations will appear before the Lords Home Affairs, Health and Education EU Sub-Committee on Wednesday 4 July, as part of their inquiry into the EU’s Global Approach to Migration and Mobility (GAMM)

The Committee will be hearing from:

  • Rebecca Crerar from the Suffolk Refugee Support Forum; and
  • Juan Camilo Cock, Migrants’ Rights Network.

The Committee are likely to quiz the witnesses on issues such as:

  • improving the integration of migrants from both inside and outside the EU;
  • the challenges faced by migrants in the UK and whether they differ depending on whether they are from the EU or not;
  • the motivation behind migrants coming to the UK and why they choose here above many other EU Member States; and
  • any changes to migration trends that may have occurred since the GAMM was first launched in 2005.
