Migrant crisis: Europe response is not effective

News

Published: 25Aug2015

McGill Law Professor and the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the human rights of migrants, François Crépeau, today called on the European Union to establish a human rights-based, coherent and comprehensive migration policy* which makes mobility its central asset. “It is the only way in which the EU can reclaim its border, effectively combat smuggling and empower migrants,” he said in a press release today.
