Refugees are Welcome – Towards a Progressive Refugee Policy!

We are facing the worst refugee crisis since the Second World War. Most of the refugees are domestic or end up in the neighboring countries. A few of them try to continue to Europe. European politics have to show that it complies with the core values and fulfils the high expectations of protecting human dignity and shouldering the reception of persecuted human beings. It is time for actions that guarantee all people safety and respect for the fundamental human rights.

This is what the Progressive Alliance and the International Union of Socialist Youth (IUSY) are calling in their common statement to the European leaders on the occasion of the Extraordinary Justice and Home Affairs Council on 14 September 2015 in Brussels.
