Mission report – Germany, 7-8 January 2016

In December 2015 and January 2016, EESC delegations visited eleven EU Member States to meet civil society organisations working with migrants in order to identify the problems, needs, failures, success stories and best practices of the various players in the current refugee crisis with the ultimate aim of providing input into EU policy-making. The delegation to Germany was composed of Antti- Jukka Ahtela (Finland, Employers' Group), Peter Schmidt (Germany, Workers' Group) and Krzysztof Balon (Poland, Various Interests Group), supported by Johannes Kind, EESC secretariat. The delegation visited facilities and held meetings in Passau and Munich on 7-8 January 2016.
