The increasing flow of migrants in Brazil has generated a growing demand for assistance, protection and services policies and programmes for migrants and refugees, especially those with a higher degree of vulnerability. In this context, the federal government has been working on building a coordinated service network that includes the various players involved in attending to migrants.
Portugal and Spain, among other European countries, have experience in the development of care and assistance networks for migrants and refugees. This knowledge is an important source of information for the development of a model for a Brazilian network, to be coordinated by the Foreign Department of the Ministry of Justice.With the sponsorship of the EU-Brazil Sector Dialogues Support Facility, a European expert will map the potential for migrant and refugee services in Brazil. Based on this information, models similar to those being proposed for Brazil will be identified in the European Union. As a follow-up, a group of Brazilian technicians will go on a mission to Europe to see up close the experiences of selected European assistance networks, thus promoting an effective exchange of experiences between the EU and Brazil.
The findings of the study and mission to the European Union will be presented at an international seminar to be held in Brasilia and in a publication to be produced by the Ministry of Justice.
