AT THE MUSEUM OF PEACE - MAMT INITIATIVES IN FAVOR OF MIGRANTS AND REFUGEES

The Museum of Peace - MAMT has hosted initiatives in favor of migrants and refugees precisely to remember the emergence of a situation that is causing thousands of victims all over the world.
The current situation in the world has over 250 million migrants, of whom 22.5 million are refugees.
Especially in a historical moment in which the topic "migrants" becomes a thorny issue and US President Donald Trump would like to revoke the protection status to thousands of immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and some African countries, it is necessary to act to promote integration and coexistence.
Article 1A of the 1951 Geneva Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees defines:

"The refugee is one who fearing reason to be persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, belonging to a particular social group or for his political opinions, is outside the country of which he is a citizen and can not or does not want to because of this fear, make use of the protection of this country; or that, having no citizenship and being outside the country in which he habitually resides as a result of such events, he can not or does not want to return there because of the aforementioned fear ".

Precisely for these reasons, President Capasso - welcoming visitors from all over the world - has instead reiterated his concern about the conditions of those fleeing war, persecution, natural disasters, poverty.
The Fondazione Mediterraneo will participate in the 105th World Refugee Day which will take place on September 29th 2019.
