Screening of the film The Old Oak

18 June 2024 at 7 pm, Kino Film Europe, Štefánikova 25, Bratislava

The Old Oak is the story of a village in the Northeast of England. Many have left what was once a thriving, proud community which now struggles to keep old values alive. There is growing anger, resentment and a lack of hope, but houses are cheap and available. This makes it an ideal location for Syrian refugees. How will they be received? And what does the future hold for the last remaining pub in the village, The Old Oak?

The Old Oak, 2023, 113 min, directed by Ken Loach, written by Paul Laverty, English with Czech subtitles

February 2022 called into action a myriad of stakeholders. Various accommodation providers were among them, ready to shelter people from war-affected Ukraine across all regions in Slovakia. Whether from a humanitarian motive, willingness to help or simply responsibility and duty, the migration situation following the invasion in Ukraine requested a prompt, all-hands-on-deck approach. 

With increasing global migration and forced displacement, many migrants face risks of insecurity, violence, exploitation, abuse, and violation of their rights. During the seminar we have looked at what makes migrants vulnerable and how to protect them, which kind of power passports have in global mobility as well as in access to opportunities, and why we keep hearing about migrant caravans. Listen to a series of podcasts of the European Migration Network (EMN) Slovakia on this topic.

The regional offices of the IOM Migration Information Centre (MIC) held 14 events in 8 different cities in Slovakia for over 760 people, mainly members of Ukrainian communities. Participants in the regions could benefit from important information and free advice on temporary protection, safe work or social security, but also cultural events or a celebration of Ukrainian Independence Day.

“Ako sa máš? Mám sa dobre. A ty?” [How are you? I’m well. And you?]. We hear people chatting as we enter a fully packed classroom in the Humanitarian Centre in Gabčíkovo, southern Slovakia, during a summer course. 

The centre harbours more than 700 hundred women, men and children who fled the war in Ukraine after it broke out in February 2022.

The regional offices of the IOM Migration Information Centre (MIC) held a dozen events in eight different cities in Slovakia for over 220 participants, mainly members of Ukrainian communities. Participants in the regions could benefit from important information and free advice on temporary protection, safe work, or social security, but also cultural events or a health promotion day.

The theme of dignified labour conditions is topical and gains in importance. Different risks can lead to labour exploitation and trafficking in human beings. Listen to a series of the European Migration Network (EMN) podcasts on this topic.

In June 2023, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) Slovakia, and its Migration Information Centre (MIC) in Slovakia have organised a series of community events that aimed to celebrate diversity, promote cultural exchange and provide valuable support to community members.

“I’ve lived and worked in a small town in western Ukraine my entire life,” says 51-year-old Nastya. “However, when the war started last year, I began fearing for my safety and decided to leave.” After a quick internet search, Nastya came across an online ad offering attractive jobs in the hotel industry in Slovakia.
