Migration: Europe - The Continent of Solidarity

Bruxelles, 28/03/2018 - 18:50, UNIQUE ID: 180328_26

Over the past 20 years, the European Union has put in place some of the highest common asylum standards in the world. And in the past two years, European migration policy has advanced in leaps and bounds with the European Agenda on Migration proposed by the Juncker Commission in May 2015. Europe is a continent of solidarity and will continue keeping legal pathways open for people in need of international protection. Offering legal pathways will also prevent migrants and refugees from having to resort to smuggling and trafficking networks and making perilous irregular journeys to reach Europe.
