As part of a coalition of seven Christian NGOs, JRS Europe calls for a ‘toolbox’ to be developed with several mechanisms that ensure access to asylum and proper procedures for people in need of it. This could include the issuing of ‘humanitarian visas’, but also the lifting of the visa requirements for groups like those fleeing the war in Syria. Other ‘tools’ could include more resettlement places, humanitarian admissions, and the liberalisation of family reunification rules.
