Asylum and integration policies


Croatian NGOs join in #RefugeesWelcome action

Activists of several non-governmental organisations on Saturday staged a rally in Europe Square in downtown Zagreb to protest against the current asylum policy of the European Union accusing the EU of giving a slow and inadequate repose to the ongoing humanitarian crisis caused by a larger influx of migrants fleeing war-hit areas in Asia and northern Africa.


SOLIDAR calls on the EU to live up to its value

As also highlighted in this morning’s President Juncker’s speech, the migration and refugee crisis is one of the most pressing issues for the EU at the moment. Although the tragedies in the Mediterranean involving people trying to reach the EU in search of protection and a better life have become a recurring horror in the last years, the phenomenon increased tremendously in the last month and involved also countries at the land borders of the EU and the Western Balkan region. EU coordinated human rights-based political responses are urgently needed and some of the points mentioned by President Juncker today represent important steps on which we can build.


Safeguarding non refoulement within Interpol’s mechanisms

The Centre for Peace Studies is a civil society organization dealing with, among other issues, protection of human rights of refugees. We are advocating prevention of further persecution of refugees by their country of origin. INTERPOL’s Red Notices and Diffusions are at the disposal of refugees’ countries of origin, in the same way they are at the disposal of any other Interpol’s member state. These mechanisms can and have been used by refugees’ countries of origin with the view of further persecuting these people for political or any other illicit reason.


Migrant tragedies, one of many fundamental rights challenges that need tackling

Record numbers of migrants died as they tried to cross the Mediterranean to reach Europe in 2014. Member States should therefore consider offering more legal possibilities for people in need of international protection to enter the EU, as viable alternatives to risky irregular entry. This is one of the conclusions from this year’s Annual report of the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) which looks at developments across the EU in many areas over 2014.
