EU 12th High-Level Meeting of Religious Leaders

Tomorrow, 29 November, Frans Timmermans, First Vice-President of the European Commission, will host the 12th High-Level Meeting of Religious Leaders from across Europe. Dimitris Avramopoulos, Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship and European Parliament Vice-President Antonio Tajani will also take part. The meeting will discuss Migration, integration and European values, focusing on challenges posed by populism and intolerance and the role of education and grassroots outreach in improving integration and social cohesion in Europe. The meeting will take place within the framework of the ongoing dialogue with religious, philosophical and non-confessional organisations under Article 17 TFEU.

There will be a press conference at 12 noon: you can watch it from this link on the European Commission Audiovisual Service website.

Update, 29 November

Subsequent to the press conference, the Commission issued a fairly anodyne press release.
