ESI’s Gerald Knaus took part in the panel discussion Mercator Salon on "Can we make it? A Conversation on Confidence, Values and Migration and Asylum Policy in Europe", together with Serap Güler, State Secretary for Integration and Refugees of Nordrhein-Westfalen, and Michael Martens, Foreign Correspondent for Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung in Athens, as moderator. The panel was followed by an open-floor debate with the 170 attendants, discussing the future of asylum and migration policy.

While in Essen, Stiftung Mercator recorded a video outlining ESI's proposals on migration and asylum policy (in German). The video explains why joint European reception centres for refugees in Europe are important and why Germany is a central actor in this debate:
