On 7th April ECRE sent a letter to the Hungarian presidency in preparation for the 11th and 12th JHA Council Meeting, intended to discuss the EU’s response to the refugee flows to the EU from north Africa. The letter contains four central recommendations to the EU MS, namely:
- Support opening up and strengthening protection space in the region;
- Offer a meaningful number of resettlement places in Europe;
- Respect the right to asylum in the EU; and
- Engage in concrete solidarity between EU MS.
