The objective of the third meeting of the European Migration Forum was for civil society organisations and practitioners in the field to discuss Migrants' access to the EU, to rights and to services - Challenges and ways forward. This topic was chosen in consultation with civil society organisations.

The Forum format was based on a participatory approach, which provided space for work in small groups and a free but guided discussion. This enabled civil society organisations to closely interact on concerns and areas of common interest, helping to create a real European network of organisations. Moreover, the participation in the working groups of representatives of the EU institutions allowed civil society to reach out directly to those institutions.
