OPPORTUNITIES: the Dakar meeting


The right to be mobile Consortium Meeting of Dakar February 2023

OPPORTUNITIES organized a wonderful meeting in Dakar. A meeting with much consultation, dialogue and exchange with NGOs, artists, architects, cultural leaders, experts and politicians. The key message from all was: reinstate the natural right to be mobile. The reinstallation of this right creates ways to end the terrible migration trade that only leads to many deaths and to the mistreatment of refugees. This right also creates the possibility of fair dialogue between African and European countries. It even opens up opportunities to create a level playing field at the individual level. Migrants are no longer faceless people, but people who want to live in dignity.
