COFACE member Salud y Familia, Spain, attends UN migration summit in New York

The United Nations nominated Vice President Mr. Eduard Sagarra from the Asociación Salud y Familia to attend the United Nations Summit on Migrants and Refugees which was held at the headquarters of United Nations in New York on 19 September 2016.
This Summit is a key global reference on immigration and asylum, and we were proud to have a COFACE member present for this important event. At the moment, COFACE is closely following the developments of a number of instruments in the field of migration and asylum, including the revision of the Blue Card Directive, the reception directive and the asylum package. We are working closely with other civil society partners and networks and providing concrete inputs in relation to the provisions concerning family reunification and family members, to ensure high standards and respect of human rights.
