The project is led by JRS Europe and implemented in partnership with JRS Belgium, SJM Spain, JRS France, JRS Ireland, Centro Astalli Rome, JRS Malta, JRS Portugal and JRS Romania.
The project aims to use the lessons learned from national responses to the covid crisis in the areas of reception of asylum seekers and immigration detention to promote small-scale reception systems and feasible alternatives to detention.
