EU Ministers: STOP #EUCompacts

Very discreetly and to our governments’ request, EU Member States and other countries are seeking to work with the European Union on establishing Partnership Framework Agreements, often called “Compacts.” We believe there is a fundamental danger with the ‘reductionist’ narrative, which says that we should seek to send back as many people as possible and at all costs, even if that may mean a disregard for human rights.

As the UN Refugee Agency’s (UNHCR) protection of displaced people policy chief Volker Türk stated recently, restrictive policies do not ultimately prevent people from crossing borders.

The worst of this is that the countries prioritised for these agreements which our government will sign, are places where human rights violations, including religious freedom, are widespread.

On June 19th, EU Foreign Affairs Ministers will gather in Luxembourg for a Foreign Affairs Council to discuss external policies and migrations, and we believe more of these Compacts agreements will be signed and planned on this occasion.

Help us make our governments aware ! Share the message on social media and participate to our advocacy actions: www.eearefugees.org/eu-ministers-stop-the-eucompacts/

IMPORTANT: in your custom message, replace #EUCouncil #eucopresident by @EUCouncil @eucopresident for Twitter and by @eucouncil @europeancouncilpresident for Facebook to mention the EU Council and its president.
