Feb 01 2017 - Refugees

When you see this destruction you really understand what being a refugee means, and why it is so important to show solidarity and not rejection, to provide them with asylum when possible and not push them back across borders.feedback

Nov 03 2016 - Refugees

I am deeply saddened by another tragedy on the high seas. So many lives could be saved through more resettlement and legal pathways to protection. The Mediterranean is a deadly stretch of sea for refugees and migrants, yet they still see no other option but to risk their lives to cross it.feedback

As a first reaction I'm deeply concerned about any arrangement that would involve the blanket return of anyone from one country to another without spelling out the refugee protection safeguards under international law. An asylum seeker should only be returned to a 3rd state if the responsibility for assessing the particular asylum application in substance is assumed by the 3rd country.feedback

Feb 25 2016 - Greece

We disagree with these measures and call once again for cooperation. The problem is we have called for cooperation for a long time now and we don't get a response. So we need to find a convincing way to do it.feedback
