Missing migrants and their families: Journeys of uncertainty

17 May 2018

On 17 May, the ICRC convened a panel discussion at the Humanitarium to discuss humanitarian issues around missing migrants and their families: What are their needs? What are the challenges? How to address these issues? The panel comprised a variety of actors from governments, International Organization for Migration and International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.

The event formed part of the 2018 Global Research and Debate Cycle on Migration and Displacement.
