The issue of migration has been on the agenda of the Churches in Europe for a number of years. A great number of meetings have been held in order to compare experiences, inform Christian communities and appeal both to the public opinion and politicians.
Since the very beginning of CCEE this topic has been on the agenda and several meetings have been organised. A specific section of the Caritas in Veritate Commission deals with migrations and regularly organises meetings with delegates from all over the Continent. However in many other meetings migration is also a main topic. The Presidency of CCEE is also attentive and when necessary proposes appropriate intervention.
In matters of migration, CCEE has a special relationship with ICMC (International Catholic Migration Commission) and other catholic European networks active in the field of the pastoral care for Migrants.

On several occasions the Roma People have been also a topic of special interest. Together with COMECE or CEC, CCEE has already organised meetings or prepared press communiqués calling for the improvement of the situation of Roma People in Europe.
Below is a collection of documents, meetings and press releases relating to the theme of Migration, Roma People. Information is displayed in chronological order from the most to the least recent.
