When the edge becomes the center

The working group for Social Ministry of the Conference of Europe held its annual meeting in March 2017 in the city of Bochum, Germany.

We feel that a colloquium is a good way to provide a forum where those actively engaged in Ministry for Migrants can share their experiences, receive new impulses, and network...
