In some countries, they call them “invisible persons”, in others – “ghosts”. Throughout Europe there are many migrants, primarily rejected asylum seekers, who live in a state of protracted legal and social limbo without any long-term prospects.

Dans certains pays, on les appelle les « personnes invisibles », dans d’autres, les « fantômes ». Partout en Europe, nombre de migrants, surtout des demandeurs d'asile déboutés, vivent dans une situation de vide juridique et social qui perdure, sans perspectives à long terme.

In response to the escalating violence, the Council strengthened the enforcement of the EU arms embargo against Syria and reinforced sanctions against the Syrian regime.
