Based in Brussels, the regional office of JRS Europe facilitates a network of country offices through collaborative planning and project development. It also provides direct support to forced migrants and refugees, especially those who are overlooked and requiring the greatest need.
Currently, JRS Europe oversees several projects that assist asylum seekers and other forced migrants in detention, as well as spearheading community initiatives that foster hospitality and social inclusion.
At the level of the European Union, JRS Europe advocates for refugees’ rights and ensures their voices are heard by policymakers. We promote the fair and respectful treatment of all forced migrants, defending their access to asylum procedures and basic rights as enshrined in international law.
JRS Europe works towards building a Europe that welcomes, protects, and integrates refugees into a fully inclusive society founded on the values of solidarity and hospitality.
