The President of the Global Platform for the Syrian Students, Mr. Jorge Sampaio, made an especial on "The role of higher education in resolving the humanitarian crisis" during the opening of the 2016 Vision Europe Summit, focused on "Improving the Responses to the Migration and Refugee Crisis in Europe".
The aim of Vision Europe is bringing together partners which are highly respected voices in their national contexts and beyond, and which command a strong analytical base while maintaining an international outlook. The partners work on a pool of common socio-economic issues. These synergies are now joined in order to infuse national as well as European policy debates.
Members of the think tanks and foundations engage in working groups in order to elaborate policy briefs on different aspects of the annual theme. Innovative policy options for reforms are developed. The policy briefs are presented to and debated with a high-level public on the occasion of the annual Vision Europe Summit which took place in Lisbon in 2016. Additional research such as cross-country surveys allow connecting citizens’ attitudes to the policy recommendations expressed by Vision Europe.
