Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF; English: Doctors Without Borders) announced it will invite Luxembourg Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) to a round table discussion on the occasion of the presentation of its new report on migration in Europe on Thursday 30 May, from 19:00 to 20:30 at the Cercle Cité in Luxembourg.

The event is free of charge and will focus on the presentation of MSF's new report "Death, Despair and Destitution: the Human Cost of EU Migration Policies." The presentation will be followed by a round table discussion on the human impact of European migration policies, moderated by Luxembourg journalist Patrick Bartz.

Five representatives of Luxembourg's parties in the European Parliament have confirmed their participation in this public event: Marc Angel (LSAP), Nancy Braun (DP), Tilly Metz (the Greens), Monica Semedo (Fokus) and Isabel Wiseler-Lima (CSV). All participants will be able to express their views on the specific aspects of migration policy that have been part of their work during this legislative cycle.

The conclusions and recommendations from the MSF report will be presented by Umberto Pellecchia, an anthropologist and migration specialist at LuxOR, the Luxembourg Operational Research.

The document, presented to the European Parliament on 10 April, details what MSF teams observed directly during their humanitarian medical operations in twelve countries in Europe, Africa and the central Mediterranean between August 2021 and September 2023. The report also includes data from more than 28,000 emergency medical consultations, as well as testimonies from patients and medical teams.

The event will be held in French and English. The room is accessible to people with reduced mobility.
