Is the dignified reception of all asylum seekers in Europe an illusion?
For two years now, France terre d’asile has regularly published Opinion pieces on Europe and asylum. In reaction to what we believe to be less of a refugee crisis and more of a reception crisis ; to point out EU member states’ temptation to outsource their responsibility in terms of reception to third-countries – starting with Turkey ; to defend asylum law in Europe and solidarity among states who want to protect it.
Today, we think that advocating for asylum law should be done from a more European perspective. This is the ambition of “European Insights” – an online magazine, available in both English and French to all our European partners.
