Here comes the UN Migration Pact.
UNHCR issues recommendations for EU to make 2020 the “year of change” for so-called refugee protection.
UNHCR is encouraging the Presidencies to advance work on an effective solidarity mechanism, including through relocation arrangements, with family unity prioritized.
“As we enter a new decade, and following the success of the Global Refugee Forum, the EU under its Presidencies (Germany, Croatia) has the chance to make 2020 the year of change for robust refugee protection,” said Gonzalo Vargas Llosa, UNHCR’s Regional Representative for EU Affairs.
The UN Refugee Agency launched a set of ambitious but achievable Recommendations for the 2020 Croatian and German Presidencies of the Council of the European Union (EU). The Presidencies and the envisaged EU Pact on Migration and Asylum present unique opportunities to better protect forcibly displaced and stateless people in Europe and abroad, while supporting host countries.
* It may not matter if one refused to ratify UN Migration Compact, at least not to Angela Merkel.
The EU is increasingly using qualified majority voting and will just implement regulations to achieve this, which is why outside the EU may be only way to protect and defend one’s culture and way of life.
