The New Pact on Migration and Asylum: Human Rights challenges to border procedures

Research output: Online publication or Non-textual formOnline publication or WebsiteAcademic

Abstract

On 23 September 2020, the European Commission presented its New Pact on Migration and Asylum. A key element of this legislative package is the broader use of border procedures. The rationale is that by ‘keeping’ certain asylum seekers at the borders or in transit zones, return policies would become more effective. This blog post argues that the proposal conflicts with legal obligations arising from the Human Rights to liberty and freedom movement.
