EU-Pact on Migration

Since March 2021, borderline-europe has been coordinating a project on the New EU Pact on Migration and Asylum within the framework of the "Europe for Citizens" program. A total of six partner organizations are addressing the Pact regarding various focal topics. 

Background

In the course of the efforts to reform the "Common European Asylum System (CEAS)", the European Commission presented the proposal for a new EU Pact on Migration & Asylum in September 2020.

Self-proclaimed goals include more efficient and faster procedures at the EU's external borders and the promotion of cooperation among member states. According to human rights organizations and legal experts, however, the proposal poses a threat to the individual right to asylum and provides a distorted view of European solidarity, in which cohesion among member states is constituted by fighting people on the move.

Together with our partner organizations, we shed light on the pact from various perspectives and delve into selected aspects in events and discussions. 

The project is funded by the EU program "Europe for Citizens", which aims to strengthen civil society participation in political discourse at the EU level.

Criminalization of Migration & Solidarity in Italy

In the course of the collective attempt to shut down its borders, the EU uses numerous means of deterrence to prevent people from seeking safety in Europe. The criminalisation of people on the move and those who are in solidarity with them has been a widespread strategy for years. In Italy, too, people are prosecuted under the charge of "aiding and abetting unauthorised entry".

Criminalisation of migration and solidarity

Migration and solidarity with people on the move is being increasingly criminalised. Resisting this criminalisation is a central part of our work. We research and document socio-political developments and cases of criminalisation. In doing so, we provide concrete support for those affected and inform and sensitize a broad public in the form of information materials, public events and campaigns.
