Beirut Seminar – Refugees Struggle for Freedom
The Seminar on ”Refugees Struggle for Freedom”, hosted by PSP Lebanon and in cooperation with ASDF, PES, S&D Group, GPF, Solidar and FEPS, was held on 30-31 October 2015 in Beirut, Lebanon.
Our fundamental values of humanism, solidarity and human rights have been tested. Despite the resurgence of nationalist and xenophobic movements, which are opposite to our fundamental progressive values, the EU has agreed on a common approach, in solidarity with neighbouring countries, to ensure that those fleeing gruesome wars receive adequate protection. Protection starts at home. First and foremost, we must ensure that Syrians living in Syria have access to humanitarian assistance.
