EU migration: Time for an ambitious human rights based agenda
On 14 and 15 December EU Heads of State are expected to discuss the internal and external dimension of the EU’s migration policy. ENAR co-signed a joint statement with 30 NGOs asking EU member states to adopt an ambitious human-rights based Migration Agenda.
Instead of proposing policies that represent only the lowest common denominator between member states, the EU should put forward a principled agenda that addresses migration in both a humane and effective way. European leaders should leverage the attention to migration and displacement to promote global policies that are deeply embedded in a strong human-rights agenda.
