Civil Society Questionnaire: EP Study on Humanitarian Assistance

Online Questionnaire to Civil Society Organisations: Your contribution to a European Parliament Study on “The Implementation of the Humanitarian Assistance Exemption in the Facilitation Directive”

The questionnaire in English, French or Spanish. Deadline 7 October.

For more information please contact CEPS.

The Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS), in cooperation with Social Platform, PICUM, Eurocities and the European Community Shipowners’ Association, is conducting a study commissioned by the European Parliament on “The Implementation of the Humanitarian Assistance Exemption in the Facilitation Directive”.

The study will strongly rely on the practical experiences of civil society organisations, cities and practitioners in the implementation of the Facilitators’ Package which is currently under review by the European Commission and the European Parliament.

For this reason, we invite you to contribute to this study by responding to the questions in our online Questionnaire, available in English, French and Spanish.

The questionnaire will take approximately 20/30 minutes to complete, and, although we are aware of your very high workloads, we believe that this would be a crucial opportunity to prove the extremely negative impacts of criminalisation of assistance to undocumented migrants to the EU policy-makers. We have also arranged a possibility for you to ‘exit the Questionnaire’, save your answers and continue later at any time if you wish and we hope that this would make it more accessible and less time consuming for you.

Your contribution to this study will greatly enhance the European Parliament’s role in ensuring the democratic accountability of the Facilitators’ Package.

The deadline to submit this questionnaire is 7 October 2015. Confidentiality of responses will be strictly respected at all times. Answers will not be quoted directly and responses will remain anonymous.

Thank you in advance for your participation!

For any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact CEPS.
