During its multiannual action, KSPM-ERP has developed partnerships and joint actions with reputable national, European and international bodies and organizations sharing the same visions and values.
As a body of the Church of Greece, our Center has long co-operated and represented in the Churches’ Commission for Migrants in Europe / CCME, an umbrella of church organizations that monitor European and national policies on matters, such as immigration, asylum, statelessness, racism and xenophobia and makes relevant policy proposals to the institutions and bodies of the European Union.
As part of its advocacy for justice, dignity and human rights of immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers, KSPM-ERP participates in the Racist Violence Recording Network (RVRN), the Greek Anti-Poverty Network and the Campaign for the access to asylum in Greece.
At the same time, KSPM-ERP cooperates with relevant organizations from European churches as well as with communities and organizations of refugees and immigrants to exchange views, reach common goals and formulate proposals to address the needs and difficulties identified in our fields of activity.
KSPM-ERP deploys its many years of experience and know-how by designing and implementing projects and interventions funded by European churches such as the Evangelical Church in the Rhineland and the Federation of Swiss Protestant Churches and ecclesiastical organizations such as The Churches Commission for Migrants in Europe / CCME, Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe and formerly ProAsyl and Caritas. It has also received funding from national bodies, such as the Ministry of Health and Social Solidarity (EGF), the Ministry of Employment and Social Protection (CC Equal, “European Year of Equal Opportunities for All”), European such as European Commission and other international bodies.
