How can European Union member states and institutions get creative, reform old policies and act as one in response to the Syria crisis?
In this exclusive #AcrossBorders video, three experts issue their calls to action for a unified and innovative approach.
Alexandre Polack, European Commission spokesperson for international cooperation, development, humanitarian aid and crisis management; Shada Islam, director of policy at Friends of Europe; and Déirdre de Búrca, World Vision Brussels and EU Representation’s director of advocacy and justice for children, offer their take on Europe’s potential role.
Across Borders is a monthlong online conversation hosted by Devex and partners — World Vision, the European Commission's Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection department, the U.S. nonprofit partner of the International Organization for Migration and United Nations Volunteers — to analyze and amplify the discussion on global migration and current refugee crises through the lens of global security, development cooperation and humanitarian aid work, and more.
