Welcoming Europe Alliance

The WEA was a key player in the coordination of organizations and civil society around the topic of migration. This alliance gave partners a space to exchange practices, experiences, ideas and documents, and to collaborate on campaigns or other projects.


20 organisations from 10 European countries were part of the Alliance: Austria, Belgium, Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and UK.

The WEA members participated in a short workshop on strategic communication and narratives’  changes.

The WEA’s members worked via  Facebook Workspace where they had direct access to information about other organisations and people, detailing their areas of work and functions.

2 WEA Breakfast Sessions in which the members exchanged their news, updates and activities. Some of the topics discussed during these two events are pushbacks, criminalisation of solidarity, border control mechanisms and Frontex’s actions.
