CCME is an ecumenical organisation that serves the churches in their commitment to promote the vision of an inclusive community through advocating for an adequate policy for migrants, refugees and minority groups at European and national level. In the fulfilment of this mandate it is responding to the message of the Bible which insists on the dignity of every human being and to the understanding of unity as devoid of any distinction between strangers and natives.
"ASPIRE " (Assessing and Strengthening Participation In Refugee resettlement to Europe) is a European project, coordinated by the Churches´ Commission for Migrants in Europe (CCME). The project enhances knowledge and political will in EU member states to engage in resettlement - as an additional and integral element of refugee protection. It continues and reinforces work on resettlement across the EU member states and promotes EU wide cooperation and coordination on resettlement. The project aims at encouraging additional EU member states to formally commit to resettlement, so that a sufficient number of EU resettlement countries is reached in order to explore added value of a European scheme/ a stronger EU coordination in the area of resettlement.
2008 up until 2010
