On the occasion of World Refugee Sunday 2020, which will be commemorated on 14 or 21 June 2020, EEA has launched a new edition of the position paper on refugees. Four years after the first publication of the paper, the situation of many refugees in and around Europe remains devastating and continues to present European politics with great challenges. With the launch of the new edition, EEA wishes to stress the continuing importance of the issue and calls on its members to renew their commitment to prayer and action in the fight against the suffering of many refugees.
“We believe that Evangelicals must not forget the refugee situation. As the EU attempts to try to break the political deadlock this year, we believe EEA should make its position clear again. These are difficult questions to grapple with. But they need to be discussed. They will not go away by themselves. “ [excerpt from the foreword of Thomas Bucher, General Secretary of the EEA].
