Estonian Voice in the Refugee Crisis

The migrant crisis in Europe is already a highly debated issue, but the Open Estonia Foundation, a group of Estonian politicians and other experts realised that what was missing in the debate was the wider context. Moreover, the lack of such context – and dialogue – with views from different levels of society, had left a vacuum for populism and fear-mongering. The Open Estonia Foundation joined a pan-European initiative called U-Impact and organised a lively debate to discuss the European refugee crisis, its possible scenarios and how citizens could voice their opinions in finding solutions.

The event was broadcast live in Estonia and abroad, with many international NGOs calling in to the meeting to share their experiences and opinions working on the crisis.
