Message du Comité droit des personnes migrantes de la COING / Message from the CINGO Committee Rights of persons who are migrants

Cher.e.s members,

Au cours de l’Assemblée Générale de la Conférence des OING du Conseil de l’Europe qui a eu lieu les 5 et 6 avril dernier, le « Comité Droit des personnes migrantes » a présenté un bilan provisoire de ses actions au sein de la Conférence.

La situation concernant les personnes fuyant le conflit ukrainien a été largement évoquée de manière concrète. Plus largement, une présentation rapide de la synthèse des réponses au questionnaire que vous avez reçu durant le premier trimestre 2022 a pu être faite. Cette analyse globale de la situation des OING et des personnes migrantes est maintenant complétée et se trouve sur le site de la conférence (lien).

Par ailleurs, pour faciliter la communication entre les OING de la Conférence et pour que chacune d’elle puisse présenter le « Comité droit des personnes migrantes » à ses ONG nationales ou locales, un document grand public illustré de quelques témoignages et photos a été rédigé ces dernières semaines. Il vous est proposé en pièce jointe en anglais et en français. N’hésitez pas à le diffuser.

Le « Comité droit des personnes migrantes » continue à être vigilant sur la situation migratoire en Europe et se tient prêt à recevoir toute remarque et / ou proposition de la part des OING membres de la Conférence.

A tous nous souhaitons un bel été tout en n’oubliant pas que les droits des personnes migrantes sont défendus tous les mois de l’année, notamment grâce à la Société Civile que nous représentons pour une grande part !

Le Comité droit des personnes migrantes   


Dear members,

During the General Assembly of the Conference of INGOs of the Council of Europe, which took place on 5 and 6 April, the “Migrants’ Rights Committee” presented a provisional assessment of its actions within the Conference.

The situation of people fleeing the Ukrainian conflict was widely discussed in a concrete manner. More broadly, a brief presentation was made of the summary of the responses to the questionnaire that you received during the first quarter of 2022. This global analysis of the situation of INGOs and migrants is now completed and can be found on the conference website (link).

In addition, to facilitate communication between the INGOs of the Conference and so that each of them can present the “Migrant Workers’ Rights Committee” to its national or local NGOs, a document for the general public illustrated with a few testimonies and photos has just been drafted. It is available as an attachment in English and French. Do not hesitate to distribute it.

The “Migrants’ Rights Committee” continues to be vigilant on the migration situation in Europe and is ready to receive any comments and/or proposals from the INGOs members of the Conference.

We wish all of you a nice summer while not forgetting that the rights of migrants are defended every month of the year, in particular thanks to the Civil Society that we represent for a large part!

The Migrant’s Rights Committee
