The President of the Conference of INGOs of the Council of Europe and the Migration Committee "Rights of Migrants" of this Conference urge the bodies of the Council of Europe to strengthen their involvement in the growing tensions at the Polish-Belarusian border, in order to stop the violations of asylum rights in the humanitarian crisis since August 2021.

We ask the competent bodies of the Council of Europe to send a delegation to the Polish-Belarusian border and to examine the recent legislative changes in the field of migration as to their incompatibility with European law.
