AGE urges EU Council to respect refugees' human rights

Ahead of the meeting of the EU member states' ministers on 14th September to discuss the current refugee crisis, AGE Platform Europe European points out that our European values of democracy, freedom and respect of human rights should apply in the same way to EU citizens as to those who seek refuge in a EU country.

In press release, we call the European Union and national governments to agree on a common EU strategy, which would enable to perverse those values and support EU countries in respecting their international refugee and human rights legal obligations.
