The opening of the exhibition “Migration – Future in Retrospective”
18 February 2024 16:44

In 2024, IOM Switzerland will celebrate its 30th anniversary. Ambassador Iryna Venediktova took part in the ceremonial opening of a photo gallery "Migration - Future in Retrospective".

"Global solutions to the world's biggest problems - from poverty and inequality to climate change and conflict - are all inextricably linked to migration," believes the head of IOM Switzerland, Berta Fernandez-Alfaro. The safety and security of all those leaving their country, especially the most vulnerable populations, are priorities of the Organization.

In March 2022, Parliament activated special protection status S for the first time in the country's history. Since the start of the all-out war, Switzerland has provided protection to more than 80,000 Ukrainians who fled the war, with the right to work and access to education. Some have already returned to their homeland.

Ukrainians appreciate the work of the SEM, which organizes the reception, registration and accommodation of Ukrainians in Switzerland. Ambassador Iryna Venediktova thanked the State Secretary SEM, Ambassador Christine Schraner Burgener, for her personal care and support of the Ukrainian citizens.

Participants had the opportunity to familiarize themselves with photographic material by renowned journalist Darrin Zammit Lupi, which tells of the most difficult and moving moments in the lives of migrants and those seeking protection from war. We would like to thank Mariia Berlad for the wonderful musical accompaniment of the event. Every year, Switzerland examines around 30,000 asylum applications, and the main countries of origin for asylum seekers in 2023 were Afghanistan, Turkey, Eritrea, Algeria and Morocco.
