In this textJRS Europe, together with the Christian Group, presents its general comments and recommendations on the EU Pact on Asylum and Migration.  

We explain how the EU Pact on Asylum and Migrations falls short from providing the ‘fresh start’ it had promised and its good intentions are overshadowed by a range of moral and legal concerns. Furthermore, we express the belief that Europe has the potential to refuse the logic of closed borders and call on the EU institutions to adopt a more welcoming, protective and cooperative approach.
