Nota de Cáritas Europa ante la reunión del Consejo Europeo del 28 y 29 de junio.

Después de consultar el Borrador de Conclusiones del Consejo Europeo en curso, Cáritas Europa lamenta que los líderes de la UE no hayan podido avanzar sustancialmente en la reforma tan necesaria del Reglamento de Dublín.

Caritas on the Global Compacts on Migration and Refugees

19 Apr 2018 description

Since January 2015, more than 1 million people fleeing war, persecution and poverty entered or passed through Greece in search of safety and a better life, and more than 1,200 were reported dead or missing. During the latter part of 2015 and early 2016, selective and arbitrary admission policies were put in place by various European countries that eventually closed their borders to all migrants. On 20 March 2016, the EU-Turkey Deal came into effect whereby all migrants arriving irregularly on to the Greek islands would be returned to Turkey.

The new EURODAC proposal being considered by the European Commission, Council and Parliament expands the purpose of the current database of asylum applicants to facilitate the identification of “irregularly staying third country nationals” through the use of biometric data.
