  • To identify key messages that can amplify the voice of minority and migrant communities in Italy
  • To draw out the commonalities facing minorities in four countries specifically to make a powerful counter-narrative against the rush by politicians for “easy votes” by scapegoating those who are least powerful
  • To provide the platform for voice amongst those marginalized from the centre of power by identifying and communicating key messages to combat racist and xenophobic speech by those seeking (re)election in the European election on 25th May 2014


  • Discussions and forums in Greece, UK, Italy and the Netherlands with organisations representing migrants and minorities to identify common issues that they face

  • Coordinator: International Alert (United Kingdom)
