“On the path to integration: from protection to participation” is the title of the 6th Asylum Symposiums on 21/22 January 2016 in Bern. The range of topics are geared to the path that the protection seekers are taking and extends from physical access to protection and questions about admission, the procedure and the granting of protection all the way to the possibility of taking part in society. In a final step, the participants will discuss possible promising and sustainable models to enable people in need of protection to participate in Swiss life and society. This national professional conference on current issues of asylum and migration policy is organized jointly by the UNHCR Office for Switzerland and Liechtenstein and the Swiss Refugee Council (SRC) and is aimed at experts and interested individuals from public administration, civil society, politics and policymaking, relief organizations, advocacy, science and the media.
