This two-day conference aims to strengthen partnerships with faith-based organisations and religious communities in Europe so they can better advocate for the integration of refugee and migrant children into national life, and for the protection of children against all forms of discrimination and xenophobia at country and regional levels.

The online event is being co-organized by the World Council of Churches, UNICEF’s Europe and Central Asia Regional Office, the Joint Learning Initiative on Faith & Local Communities, and the European Council of Religious Leaders-Religions for Peace, in collaboration with Islamic Relief Worldwide, A World of Neighbours, the Lutheran World Federation and World Vision International.
