New event format launched at the EP

26.01.2016 | On 26 January GIZ launched a new event series at the European Parliament. Under the heading 'From Field to Parliament' experienced GIZ practitioners exchange with policy makers, especially accredited parliamentary assistants and EP staff.

At the kick-off, Peter Bonin, who heads up GIZ's Migration and Development Sector Project, talked about migration and the refugee crisis. 28 EP participants used the opportunity to ask their questions and to learn more about current challenges and established projects. For example, how migrants can be a factor for development. The event was hosted by MEP Arne Lietz. A video of this Q&A session can be seen on the GIZ YouTube channel.
