From the editors
Denmark has pursued increasingly restrictive immigration and asylum policies. During the past three years, the country has adopted some 70 immigration-related amendments aimed at intensifying restrictions, dramatically cut back its asylum recognition rate, and called for detaining as many failed refugees as possible. Observers have repeatedly criticised the penitentiary-like conditions of Denmark’s main immigration detention centre as well as inadequate efforts to identify victims of torture, who can be subject to detention.
Le trimestre écoulé a été marqué par une poursuite et une intensification des violences armées dans les préfectures de la Nana-Gribizi, la Ouaka, l’Ouham, l’Ouham Pende et de la Haute Kotto. Cette situation a provoqué des déplacements de population, comme à Bria qui a accueilli 20 000 nouveaux déplacés, et des exactions tant contre les civils que les acteurs humanitaires. Dans certaines zones comme à Kaga Bandoro, cette insécurité a aussi causé le pillage des bases et l’arrêt temporaire des activités des partenaires humanitaires.
