Refugees and Migration

Refugees and Migration

Migration is not a threat to our democracies, but intolerance and hatred undoubtedly are. Our common objective must be to fight terrorism, not to fight migrants, refugees and asylum seekers.

The most vulnerable of groups in Europe today is migrant children, who often are denied basic health care and education, and run the risk of being exploited by traffickers or smugglers.

As soon as refugees put their foot on European soil they should be treated equally under the European Convention of Human rights.

Do you want to know more about how we protect the human rights of refugees? The answers are just one click away.
