Refugee Rights Europe
Hundreds of refugees and displaced people are known to be sleeping rough in and around Maximilian Park in Brussels, Belgium. The situation reportedly intensified since the destruction of the so-called ‘Jungle’ camp in Calais, France, and conditions are today extremely bleak, with a lack of adequate sanitation and hygiene facilities.
In this context, Refugee Rights Europe (RRE) deployed a field research team to Brussels to conduct new research regarding the situation for refugees and displaced people there. From 22 to 25 June 2018, RRE surveyed a total of 118 individuals. The research findings are outlined in this report and paint a clear picture of the unsustainable situation that is unfolding in Brussels, just a stone’s throw from the heart of European power.
