This week SIRIUS Network, on Behalf of ENAR, has coordinated a Working Group on Access to Education for migrants and refugees of color within the EU. The focus on this meeting was the access to higher education of third national refugees fleeing from Ukraine.
We had as a speaker BIPoC Ukraine and Friends in Germany, a self-organized group which offers assistance and advice to African international students who fled from Ukraine and leads advocacy actions. We had participants from different organizations across Europe and also observers from the European Commission. During this meeting we had the opportunity to report on the situations of refugee international students in different Member States, and we had a fruitful discussion. As a result of the conversionation, the group has agreed on the next actions of our Working Group.
