«The Danish Red Cross-Danish Refugee Council “buddy programme” aims to ensure that all newly arrived refugees with a residence permit are offered a buddy in their host community.»
On 15,16,17 of September, an online staff training took place, under the initiative Migrants for Migrants, which is focused on fostering the inclusion of newly-arrived migrants in their host society by using the Buddy System.
This initiative intends to promote the inclusion of migrants in their host communities by facilitating their empowerment and by creating links and sustainable contacts between refugee associations, social services, local administrations, and volunteer associations.
«The COVID-19 pandemic has largely put a freeze on migration. But will the movement of people recover once the current crisis is over? In an interview with UN News, Gary Rynhart, a senior official at the UN labour agency, ILO, explains why a return to “normal” is unlikely, and migrants will probably face a very different job market.»
