Developing a coherent strategy for and with refugees

Vaughan Jones


Following on from his August 2015 paper about the Calais situation, Ekklesia associate Vaughan Jones, URC minister and former CEO of a major NGO working with displaced people, addresses the refugee crisis by looking at the steps needed to bridge short-term and long-term requirements. His focus is on the gap between government response and the deeper causes of forced migration, the role secular and faith agencies can play, and a response rooted in the experience and expertise of refugees themselves.
