Featured projects


    This project aims to educate young people on the positive contributions of refugees to society and to encourage them to take action within their schools and local communities.

  • The One Proposal: Jesuit support to Ukraine Crisis

    JRS is working together with the Xavier Network, Concordia Moldova, the Society of Jesus in Europe, local civil society and NGOs in a coordinated Jesuit response to the Ukraine Crisis.

  • Detention Under The Spotlight

    JRS visits people in immigration detention across Europe. We witness detention’s negative impact on detainees and the effects of flawed migration systems. By exposing some of it, we hope to gain support in our call to end immigration detention.

  • Dear European Parliament

    JRS calls on all EU citizens to vote highlighting how the EU Parliament’s decisions can foster solidarity and hospitality, end migration detention, stop policies outsourcing the responsibility to protect those in need and expand safe and legal ways of reaching Europe.
