European migration

Building inclusive communities and developing humane and sustainable responses to migration.

Migration is an important factor that contributes to shaping European societies and policies. Civil society plays an essential role in building inclusive communities and in developing humanitarian and sustainable responses to migration, based on Europe’s commitment to universal human rights and social justice. Society can count on support from the King Baudouin Foundation which makes its resources and expertise available, working together with other European partners and foundations to boost its impact.

Our activities

  • as part of the European Programme for Integration and Migration (EPIM), which brings together 25 European foundations, we support and expand the influence of organisations in civil society that develop constructive approaches to migration in Europe (e.g. alternatives to the detention of migrants and humane and effective systems of asylum)
  • and we support the European Policy Centre (EPC) in developing positive and constructive dialogue on migration and sustainable political solutions to the challenges relating to migration in Europe.
